VCQ Online Classes
Register today for our next Zoom class Radiant Star with Augusta Cole.
The Radiant Star is a very striking star quilt. It is a Star that will sparkle using any background and beautiful fabrics. You can do different themes such as all Holidays, new baby, new homeowner, neighbor or any season as well as many different occasions. The quilt uses a background fabric and 2.5" fabric strips from your stash, coordinated fabric or the special occasion fabric.
