The construction is straight-forward; no Y-seams and not too many fussy match points.  The quilt top finishes at 45”x52” depending on border width.

Pre-requisites: Students should have completed at least one pieced quilt. Must know how to use a rotary cutter/ruler to cut strips of fabric. Must have basic sewing machine skills.
