It’s February and it’s Chicago. It seems like everyone I talk to is either just back from someplace warm and sunny or getting ready to go. It is with this in mind that I began thinking about the warmth of a hot August sun and what that might look like in a quilted piece. The result, August Sunburst, a 10″ square quilt suitable for hanging or placing anywhere you need a slice of summer!
Join us to connect with other makers and stitch the August Sunburst quilt on Saturday, February 2, 2019, from 9 to 11 am at The TreeHouse, a shared Creative Space in Downers Grove, Illinois. This class is suitable for all skill levels from the beginning to the experienced quilter.
The class fee of $48 includes all supplies needed to complete this hand-stitched project. Learn more and register here.
