Fandango Quilt Workshop!



The Fandango Quilt Workshop was a big success today 
despite the springtime snowstorm. 
We cut one-inch strips and sewed them into these scrappy fans 
using member Karen Griska's Fandango quilt pattern
Lunchtime was a nice break for visiting.
A good time was had by all.


































See all 45 of Karen's quilt patterns here.

The Fandango Rulers are Here!


Our custom-made 9" Fandango rulers for the workshop have arrived! 
They have brown paper on both sides to keep them nice and shiny 
until we're ready to use them. The Plexiglas is 1/4" thick. Cost is $5. 
If you have an 8" or 8.5" square ruler, that will work fine too. 
We have room for a few more participants so call Donna Bruno to sign up.
This is going to be fun!
