Sometimes you just need a fun and easy pattern to make a quick, yet stunning quilt. Lily Pads is the one! This is an easy project that includes a lot of open spaces to play with quilting designs. During class, we will make 12 blocks using a stack and whack technique and possibly even start sewing the quilt top. Quilting suggestions and binding will also be discussed. Bring your own fabric; see supply list for details.
