Rotary cutter with a sharp blade

The pattern you will be working on is called Bonaventure. Six different fabrics are required. For one block you will need only a fat quarter for four of the fabrics and slightly more for two fabrics that will also be cut for the two borders.
You will be doing a practice block, or two, so bring some 4"- 5" scraps with good contrast to use for those. The fabrics may be random, do not need to match and the colors can be crazy- they are for practice. I recommend waiting until class to choose fabrics for Bonaventure, so that we can discuss placement, value and color. Fabrics for a wall piece do not need to be washed.
Note: Please make certain we have both a telephone number and email for you.
