This technique class is for the very beginner with no experience (or for those wanting to learn the correct way!). In this class you will learn how to accurately make half-square triangles; flying geese; and quarter-square triangles (time permitting). You’ll also learn how to properly trim the blocks because if you cut off the tips, what’s the point?
