Class Overview

Over years of quilting, Anita has figured out how to let her tools do most of the persnickety work of precise measurement. Snip snip snip! She'll show you how to customize your own rulers, use paper patterns for cutting and sewing, and deploy her stack-and-stitch method of block creation. "Why didn't I think of that?" you'll wonder as you breeze through Anita's arrowhead, pineapple, square-on-point and "unbiased" blocks. Anita will also go over fabric preparation and how she chooses her fabrics and arranges the blocks for her stunning quilts.
