Ozark Garden

Ozark Garden focuses on the creative use of color, value and pattern to display a wash of sunlight and shadow around a secluded garden pool. Lily shares her award-winning patterns and relaxed goof-proof approach to paper piecing. The quilts you make will be uniquely your own in this creative class. Make a series of Garden Sampler wall hangings or create one large Garden as Lily did. Note that an extra week is included between Lessons Five and Six to allow time for finishing. Skill level: The first seven patterns are easy; later patterns are moderately complex. Your skill level will improve as you progress. Paper piecing experience helpful, but not required.

What Students are saying about our online classes

"Ruth's classes are more than just a learning experience, they are FUN! The class material is presented in an exceptional way that is easy to read and clear as fine crystal to understand. It's so obvious that she not only enjoys teaching, she loves what she teaches! She is beyond patient, and will do everything in her power to help the students create beautiful pieces of art. I look forward to her classes and can't wait to see what she's going to offer next."
