HOTFLASH! MARCH 21, 2019

 

CADENCE COURT BOM QUILTERS!

Saturday March 30 or Wednesday April 3, Starting at 10 am

We are getting down to the final months of this BOM so it’s time to schedule an informational session for completing the quilt top! We will go through the Quilt Top Construction identified on page 18 of your pattern. Cutting of the templates A, B, C, and the Center templates will be reviewed.

QGS is providing the Freezer Paper needed for this! You will need to trace several of these templates onto the freezer paper which is then used to cut the shapes out of your three background fabrics. The Classroom and a limited number of light boxes will be available for you to use if you want to do this at the Shop.

Bring your pattern, a 24” ruler, and a fine point Sharpie (or a good pencil)

Please call the Shop (815-397-5160) if you plan to attend one of these sessions.
