Learn to make Falling Leaves an original design by Alexandra Von Burg (Sondra)
- This stunning leaf quilt can be made to any size using 1/4 yard cuts, fat quarters, or scraps as small as 7"x7” of your favorite fabrics.
- There are NO templates to loose. Sondra uses a method of piecing half square triangles, easy curves, and a stem insert to create her leaves. It’s fun, easy, and addictive
- In the first class, you will learn to make leaves in 3 sizes. Then, your homework will be to make as many leaves as possible before the second class and bring all the leftover scraps.
- The second class will focus on learning how Sondra fits all three sizes of leaves together to make a quilt with square corners.
