JUBILATION - BLOCK OF THE MONTH
What a happy explosion of color in the Block of the Month! It's a great skill-builder, where you will begin with one tool, then add 3 more tools throughout the 8-month program. If you are new to our tools, this is a great way to learn some of the basics. This quilt looks like it was set on point but it isn't - everything is assembled square. All this in a quilt that looks complex, but is easy to put together.
Each month we'll have an instructional and sew time and the option to stay and continue to sew. The cost includes instruction and printed color pattern.
I've had a request to offer this as a zoom class. Let me know if you are interested. I am sure we can set something up. It would required you to sew a lot on your own, but would give you the opportunity to sew in the comfort of your own space.
Tuesdays 9am-12noon, 1-4pm or 6-9pm (please choose time slot when registering

There are a total of 17 sizes that can be made with this tool, but we'll work with a 4" unit option.
