The Carquinez Strait Quilters are hosting a class with Linda Ballard on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at the Benicia Senior Center. Doors open at 9:00 am and class begins at 9:30. There are spaces available and we would like to invite your members to join us.
The quilt is called 31-70. It is a fairly new pattern that is quite fun to make. I have attached two pictures of student quilts. These are the smallest size of 3 options. As you can see, it is a 3 fabric quilt done with light, medium and dark value fabrics.
If you are interested in this class, let me know ASAP and I will get the supply list and class info to you. The cost of this class is $25.00 for non-CSS guild members.
