While there are a couple of patterns offered in this class it is mostly based on individual design for a Celebration piece. Personalize your wall hanging for any occasion including wedding, graduation and birth, just to name a few, using elements, colors, embellishments etc. This is a great time to be creative while learning new techniques to apply to your quilt. Anita offers help and guidance with placement of elements, fabric choices, sources of inspiration and anything else that relates to your project. One of the wonderful things about the digital age is the speed of communication - students can send photos, ask questions and Anita will offer suggestions, choices and new possibilities. By discussing your project with the class, other students can interact too and offer other suggestions that you might not have thought of. Pick your occasion and join the fun.
