Raintree Woods Studio Workshop: Using Traditional Methods in a New Way

This workshop celebrates the power of breaking the rules with quilt piecing.  Learning this method will greatly increase your toolbox of choices for quilt construction.  Foundation piecing, raw edge applique and adding hand stitching combines traditional methods used in a new way.
