Resembling a kaleidoscope, the Mystical Prism quilt uses traditional piecing with unusual fabric color combinations. The finish quilt measures 102" square and will look lovely on any bed.

You will need to have The Farmer's Wife 1930's book (available at Cottontail Quilts) to participate in this Club. We will use conversion charts by Marti Michelle and the Template Set A to get started along with other techniques to make these blocks much simpler. You can make all 98 blocks or 24. How many you want to make is up to you. 
The cost of this fun Club is $15 per month. The Club will be run by Debby Schneider. Sign up soon as space is limited.
