Do you have a layer cake stack you just had to have but now have no idea what to do with it? Then this is the class for you! We will demonstrate piecing and pressing techniques that will help to get those pesky points to match up and all your seams to lie flat for ease of construction for this lap quilt. Don’t have a layer cake stack hanging around? This pattern works with fat quarters as well. As in all our classes, participation in class shenanigans is mandatory.
