Scrappy Trip Around the World

Appropriate for the confident beginner and beyond, this class is based on Bonnie Hunter's wildly popular "Scrappy Trip Around the World" tutorial that has taken the internet by storm in recent years.

You will learn how to stitch the basic block, glean tips on choosing fabrics, and play with layout options. Come prepared to complete at least four blocks in class. Then, you can stitch as many additional blocks as you like in order to make your quilt the size you desire.

Warning - this easy quilt technique is addictive!

This class ($54) will be taught by Andrea Hoke.

A required supply list will be sent with your class confirmation.
