    Patchwork Illusions with Karen Combs


    Visual depth has fascinated artists for centuries, Karen has developed a quick and easy rotary technique that allows you to make quilts with a 3-D look.  In the class, you will learn how to create many different quilts using these 3-D cubes.

    Frankly, this is Karen's favorite class because it is so easy to create truly amazing quilts of illusion.  Let Karen share her secrets, so you may become a master of illusion!
