Octagon Shimmer

The Octagon Shimmer quilt pattern by Jennifer Sampou is a wonderful combination of planned piecing and improv! Join us as we explore this interesting 17” square block and see the variations and options in this fun class.The wild geese border is a wonderful option as well, as it has a lot of movement. Great quilt for a wall, a throw size or a king-size, like I’ve done.
