Have you been wanting to learn the collage/raw edge applique method that Laura Heine uses to create her beautiful quilts? In this class we will learn fabric choice, collage piecing, fusing methods and products, color, and value. The blocks in this quilt become addicting to create.

__ 1/3 yd. fabric for flower centers
