Sparrow Quilt - meets twice

gather here Classes

The Sparrow Pattern by Lindsey of Pen + Paper is a block-based quilt pattern that is great for an advanced beginner as well as the more experienced stitcher. You can make this as color-coordinated as you want but Lindsey also provides the fabric requirements should you want to make a scrappy version using that stash of fat quarters.

In the first class we'll cut our fabric and piece a block so you learn the basics of creating the "sparrow" and can make more between sessions. In the second class we'll piece our blocks (whatever you've completed) to create your quilt top.

Limited to 4 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students are required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
