No Waste Flying Geese with the Meadowland Quilt

The Meadowland Quilt Pattern is a great beginner friendly, block based pattern. The class goal is to complete a small throw (48"x48"); however, you can choose any of the other 5 sizes to work through if you prefer. This 2-part class INCLUDES a free day in our Creative Studio to work on your blocks in between your sessions - so go nuts. One thing we can tell you to be true - the blocks are addicting!
