Extended Class A/Class 1: Studio Time/Liberty Star

Welcome to Studio Time! This class will provide you with an opportunity to finish some projects that you already have underway or you can choose to make the studio project (Liberty Star). Discover how to make Eight Pointed stars from squares and rectangles. We will make this fun and exciting quilt block with the new Modern Triangle Rectangle tool. Bring your strips, squares and rectangles pre-cut to class and we will begin sewing right away. You will use the tool in class to make all your blocks. The cost of the tool is $15.00. Please feel free to try it before you buy it. I also recommend a Frixion Pen for marking your sewing lines only. The pattern containing multiple sizes for the quilt is $10.00. If you have previously purchased the Modern Triangle Rectangle Tool bring it with you.
