Saturday Sampler Sept. 2017- Aug. 2018

November 25, 2017

Welcome to our post about our Saturday Sampler for this year. We have chosen two groups of fabrics; modern bright and vintage floral. One block is released each month in class that takes place on the last Saturday of the month at 9 am. We have close to 50 participants, in each store, all squeezed into the classroom to learn about the latest block and the techniques that were used. It is in this blog that we will post the latest photo of the block taught in class. The blocks are 12″ finished.
