Class During Quilter's Affair.....

There have been a few questions about the class in Sisters we talked about taking as a group.....


Here is a website to check out the fabric requirements and see a bit more about how the quilt is put together.

Also, one person mentioned after cutting thier fabric that they would cut the squares 2.5 inches next time instead of 2 inches.   It will give you the same effect, but you will have more fabric to work with and your quilt dimensions will be just a bit bigger than those in the pattern.

Any questions??  Feel free to ask....

Also, here is the link to sign up!

March Projects.

I think I can say for all of us that last Tuesday was a fun group.  Shannon, Shelby and Amanda were new to the chaos.....  It was great to have them and we hope to see them next time. 

 Shelby was working on a baby quilt and Christy is almost ready for the next step on her quilt...
 Erin was working on a wall hanging with a new technique you can find on
 Aura was squaring up her blocks for the fresh lemon quilt pattern we already shared with you...
