Full Bloom #2 Block of the Month

We have started a second round this Block of the Month class of the Full Bloom pattern at Kori's Fabric Creations. This is a beautiful quilt! It employs the "edge-color" applique technique. It's easy, it's fun, and you can be as sloppy as you like with your free-motion "coloring".  It’s not too late to start, but you must begin in April in order to catch up and keep up. Please contact Kori for more details if you want to sign up for this class. We will meet once a month for 12 months.
