Circle of friends Taught by national Educator Dana Jones

Course Description: In this class, you’ll master insetting circles into blocks and circles, and you’ll be amazed how easy it is to do. Using a technique and tool developed by Cheryl Phillips that requires minimal pinning — eight pins per circle no matter its size — you’ll make the first block for this quilt in a few hours. Then you’ll perfect the technique so by the end of the class, you’ll have multiple blocks done — perhaps enough for a table runner— and you’ll know how to continue making blocks for as large a quilt as you want
