Join us in making this adorable Farm Girl Sampler Quilt designed by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet Designs. Lori has created many original blocks that were inspired by her Farm Girl memories and added a new spin on some traditional blocks for this quilt. We are offering this program in two block sizes; complete instructions are in the Farm Girl Vintage book for making both 6" and 12" blocks. If you make 6" blocks your finished quilt will measure 62.5" x 76.5". For those of you who choose to make 12" blocks we have created a 7 x 7 block layout similar to the quilt above and your quilt will measure 110" x 110".

Glory Class with Darlene

Glory with Darlene  NEW
Thursday July 26th , 2018 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Instructor - Darlene Williams-Hubble

Although this quilt design is made from one simple block, it is a wonderful way to show off your sewing expertise using 2 1/2" strips. Choose either a two-color quilt or make a unique quilt by separating and using dark and light prints. Our sample uses red and blue, but you can use any color combination or go scrappy and skip the separating of fabrics completely. Pattern includes directions for the following sizes: table runner, lap, twin, queen and king. Class is suitable for confident beginners and beyond. Pre-cutting is required before class.

We appreciate your business,
