At Sea Quilt
with Doreen Morris
Let's go on an "At Sea" adventure together. This beautiful quilt looks much harder to make than it actually is. It consists of one simple block turned this way and that, which is then set on point. Because this is a class for those with some previous quilting experience, participants must know how to sew a 1/4” seam.
Upon registration, instructor will email students regarding needed supplies.
