Have you ever wanted to recreate a quilt you saw and loved but weren't sure how to deconstruct it? Do you have an idea for a quilt but aren't sure how to crunch the numbers in order to make it work? Are you thinking about resizing a pattern or block but aren't sure how to keep the proportions intact? If so, please join us for this thorough examination of the math involved in quilting.

In this class, we'll go over the basics of angles and proportion ratios, and discuss the variables that can affect seam allowances.
