Are you getting ready to come to Karen Griska's Fandango workshop at Hearthside Quilters on March 21? You will need lots of strips 1" wide. You can leave them long and cut them into the lengths you need at the workshop. 

What colors will you use? I'm cutting a variety of prints to make a very colorful quilt. Some people are using all batiks. Others are planning to use scraps or solids. Stripes are nice too.

Have you  signed up? There are 2 openings left, the fee is $25.

Call Donna at 860-489-7158 if you would like to come.
