"Great class! Although I can see that Gail has an extensive knowledge base as well as lots of hands on experience, she is an excellent teacher as well. I appreciate that there are several options for this kind of curved piecing construction; and everything was presented in a very relatable and organized manner. I am almost embarrassed to admit how many quilting classes I have enrolled in, but, this is certainly one of the best. Thank you so much!"
