Workshop focus: fabric selection and placement for the artistic design, construction technique, and quilting recommendations. The fusible foundation is provided with the class and instructions. Additional foundation may be purchased directly from Jan.Guild members can bring their own scene – and some scraps or fat quarters (not a lot of yardage) to cut the squares that will become the accent “star points” – a.k.a. half-square triangles (HST).
