My classes are;
SWEET AND SIMPLE 60 DEGREE TRIANGLE QUILT
Sixty degree triangles are simple to cut in a wide variety of sizes using nothing more than a rotary cutter and your basic 24” quilting ruler. The design possibilities for this one shape are endless. Use all scraps for an old fashioned look, all floral prints for a riot of color or how about modern brights and neutrals. Even make this out of neutral tone on tones and use as a background for appliqué. Come and enjoy the fun as Julie shows you how to cut and assemble this all-time favorite quilt.
