0518 PINEAPPLE - Instructor: Georgia Flanagan INTERMEDIATE: Beautiful Pineapple Quilt for a throw or a wall hanging. Can't go wrong with either. This class will teach the technique for using the Creative Grids Pineapple Trim Tool. This is a fun block to make and will make a beautiful quilt.
0521 Lucky Stars- Instructor- Marcia Carswell SKILL LEVEL: BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE: This quilt is suitable for new quilters with some experience. The star pattern is wonderful to learn for future quilt designs.
This is a lovely summer quilt, a patriotic quilt, also a great Christmas quilt just by changing the colors of your fat quarters.
