Galaxy Quilt (A Deb Tucker Original) *Only One Spot Remaining...
Date: Friday, April 20 (10 - 4)

Pamela made her quilt using Patriotic Red, White and Blue batiks, which is on display at Cottontail Quilts. This pattern has been made in all types of fabrics and they all turn out beautifully.  Sign up for this class early as space is limited. You will be amazed at how quick it goes together.

A series of five 3-hour classes designed as the "next step" for those who have finished their first quilt and are eager to learn more. Brush up on piecing skills while working on a sampler quilt and learning techniques for making Quarter-Square Triangles, Flying Geese, Square-In-A- Square blocks, and more. Learn simple design and setting techniques including sashings, straight set, on point set, and medallion set - each student will select their own quilt setting. Size of quilt made in class will depend on the setting chosen.  Attending the Beginner Quilting/Piecing series or knowledge of piecing is required.
