Trellis Homework

We are expected to come to class with squares cut as listed in the pattern under Cutting and Quilt Center.  Some are 3 inch squares and others are 2 1/2 inch squares.  Do not cut any of the appliqué pieces!  Reminder:  The guild's Accu-Quilter has a 2 1/2 inch strip cutter to assist in cutting the 2 1/2 inch squares.

This pattern gives us the choice between using wool or cotton for the appliqué.

Overture Homework

We are expected to come to class with our pieces cut as described in the pattern on page 26, EXCEPT, do not cut the appliqué pieces in advance.

We're so thrilled to have an instructor of Jill Finley's "Quilt Rock Star" status travel to Cordova and teach guild members new skills and techniques!  So much to look forward to and prepare for!
