Around the Garden - Garden Birds (January)

This year Jennifer is presenting “Around the Garden” - A Block of the Month Mystery Quilt designed around a garden theme. 

The layout for the lap quilt, approx. 50’x60’, made over the seven months will remain a mystery until the FINAL class of the series.  Students must enroll in the entire series to qualify to come to the final layout class in August and the show and tell gathering in September.  Over the course of the series many techniques will be presented:  appliqué, piecing, partial seams, working with specialty rulers, etc.

The supplies and yardage listed are for the COMPLETE quilt, not the requirements for each class.  Students wishing to enroll for specific blocks and not the whole series, need to bring scraps and no more than 1 yard of background fabric.  Students should be able to complete most of the blocks during class time, but some homework will be necessary.  Please see any pre-class preparation listed below.
