The Skipping Stones table runner created by Joan Louise Clemons, is a wonderful and versatile piece that can be made for any season. The construction gives you a glimpse of how bargello quilts are created. This project is good for the Beginner and the Advanced Beginner sewist. You will create the runner top during class. You will be cutting your strips and units during the first session, with some piecing. The second session we will be finishing the quilt top and discussing finishing options for the project.
