Quilts & MORE ~ Going Beyond the Basics 

Improv                                            Raymond Steeves

One – 5 ½ - 6 Hour Session                     $55.00
Ray teaches this class regularly, and each class is different and unique. All classes are based on new and unpublished designs created by him. He will supply 40 -2 1/2" strips, quilt quality fabrics from his stash and the pattern for your project. Because it's an Improv class, you will not know what we are making until the day of class. Ray has successfully taught this great fun class for several years, and everyone is amazed at the great projects that can be created from stash strips. A fun and adventurous attitude is required. You will be expected to purchase 4 yards of coordinating fabric for this project. Because you are choosing your strips from the stash it is recommended to purchase the coordinating fabric the day of class. The Oasis has a great assortment of coordinating fabrics for this project.
