Explore the exciting world of quilting with templates.  Rings of Change uses as many as 18 fabrics or as few as 2.  No two project will look exactly alike.  In this two day class we will start with cutting with templates, accurate piecing.  Freehand folding of edges and then designing...that's where the fun begins.  Two days gives us plenty of time to explore many of the possibilities of this project.  Come and join the fun!
