First Time Quilter - Patchwork Star Runner
In this self paced class we walk through a quilted runner project beginning to end. This is a great opening class to learn how to put a quilt together if you've never done so before.
A quilted runner is the perfect project to dip your toe into quilt making. Runners are made the exact same way a quilt is made, but on a smaller scale, making them the perfect place to begin your journey and learn how it all gets done.
The Sawtooth Runner class is a great jumping point into quilt making for a brand new quilter. It's also a great class if you are a beginner quilt maker and struggling to finish your quilted projects!
