Class Description

When you add triangles to the sides of a square block, the block is called a snowball. When you combine these snowballed blocks with a bordered square block, you can create a great a woven design. Learn to make this quilt in the Woven Snowballs Class.

We ask that you please provide your own rotary cutters, pins, thread, bobbins, and extra needles. Two irons and ironing boards will be available for shared-use in the classroom. If you would prefer to bring your own iron, I do have several small table-top ironing boards available for use. Don't forget your sewing machine!
