She shows you how you can make this project without the need of purchasing a special ruler and she guides you through the process, step by step.Her class includes an option for star sashing, options for alternative borders and multiple options for quilting, but best of all, if you are uncertain about any point or detail in the class, she will be there to answer your questions.Class includes a Lap size quilt of 56" x 70" (12 blocks) and a queen size quilt of 98" x 112" (42 blocks), however with Anita's alternative borders there are also additional sizes.
