Magic Squares

magic_squares

Also known as Diamonds & Squares, this traditional pattern gets a totally new look by adding a square to the patchwork pattern for an interesting visual quilt.  In  this  class you will be able to use your scraps and at the same time improve your piecing skills. The pieces are sewn together with straight seams – it is the gentle curve of the rows that adds dimension to the quilt. Join Pat Yamin for a fun class while learning many different techniques.
