MQG Webinar: Wedge Quilts Go Modern!

This looks like a great webinar hosted by the MQG!

Wedge Quilts Go Modern!
Go beyond the dresden! Modern quilting is ready for some wedge magic. Join Christina Cameli for an inspiring webinar designed to get you as excited about wedge quilts as she is. See how one simple shape gives you potential for unending dynamic quilt designs. Learn how to choose the right wedge and get tips for designing, cutting, piecing and finishing. Christina has prepared the tools you'll need to start your own wedge quilt adventure and will share them during the webinar.
