Kara will guide you through creating your own unique Rocky Mountain landscape with an aspen branch stretching across the four seasons panels. The first class will emphasize building the 4 backgrounds. The second class will cover quilting, designing the branch, and options for finishing and hanging the panels. SEWING IN CLASS NOT REQUIRED. You don’t need to bring your sewing machine. The stitching for these quilts is quite simple, and Kara will demonstrate on her machine how the various elements may be sewn. Class time is all about DESIGNING the layout of your panels.
