Amish Shadows, Light Reflected

Based on our book by the same name, we teach the basic technique for making the Amish Shadows block and creating your choice of project from the book.  We will also discuss the process for designing your own quilts using this versatile block.  We do ask that participants purchase a copy of the book.  

Allow 4 hours for the workshop.
