Creating your own unique abstract design is much easier than you think! This is one of Lyric’s favorite classes to teach and this will be a unique opportunity to experience it in a very small group setting with lots of indibividual attention.

She will gently guide you through concrete exercises designed to help  you create ideas for original abstract quilts. Doodles will be  scribbled, eyes and minds will be opened, fun will be had.
