"This class could not have been better timed. I just completed quilting all the blocks in my first non-practice quilt and was so stuck on how to tackle the borders. (Eva) explained the math part in a way I finally understood. Now I can get busy and finish the borders without fear. Thank you so much for teaching this class."
