Quilting Series (Confident Beginner to Advanced)
Our 3-month long quilting series was such a hit, we've decided to continue through the summer! Instead of changing the project each month, we are going to do a continuous project that will last for the entire quarter.
"Sunflower Babies" - This little baby quilt is brand new but it look slike it could be 80 years old. The faces are sewn with embroidery and appliqued over the dresden plate blocks. They are stuffed with a little bit of fiber-fil to make them puffy. The finished quilt measures 42" x 46". The block size is 14"x16".
Thursdays from 1 - 4pm | $60 for the quarter or $20 per month
Dates: July 6, 13, 20, 27 | August 10, 17, 24, 31 |September 7, 14 21, 28
