EssentialTriangleTool 231x300 Bonnie Hunters Wanderlust Course   a Scrap Quilt Pattern ExtraordinaireSince we will be using my new Essential Triangle Tool for this year’s Quiltville mystery, having the workshop in your Craft U library for easy access would be just the ticket for watching when you want, refreshing techniques when you need them, and honing up some skills. Craft U has now gone ALL STREAMING, so wherever you have an internet connection you can access my courses. They are yours to stream as often as you wish and you get interaction through the message boards, sharing with other students for one year from purchase!

PERFECT!

Not only will you learn to use the ruler and various techniques, you’ll also have the instruction for making Wanderlust from my new Addicted to Scraps book (because scrappy quilt patterns are quite addicting!).

Many of these same techniques and more MAY be used in one way or another during our mystery – you’ll be ready!
