1-501 Corner Beam
The Corner Beam adds even more unique options to your quilt designs. The combinations and the twists and turns make it look as if the quilter had to work with lots of odd shaped pieces when in fact they did not. The construction of a Sliver unit advances the use of the Corner Beam and once again makes precise piecing look hard when it is easy.
