Quilt Fandango Workshop


         Saturday March 21, 2015        
 9:00 – 3:00
 Bring a lunch.

  
These scrappy fans are made by eye. They’re fun to make and there are so many variations of this block! Choose any size quilt to make. Sample is 66” x 66.”
*
Bring an assortment of 1” wide scrap strips. If you are a newer quilter, bring 1 ½” – 2 ½” wide scrap strips. There will be a big community scrap table for sharing.
*
A 9” square ruler is available for $5. This is very handy. (If you already have an 8” square, that’s just as good. You can make a 12” work too, but it’s not as easy.) Call Karen Griska tonight if you want one: 860-361-6361.
