Jacks-chainSue Pawlowski will teach a workshop titled Jack’s Chain. You can make a Quilt (60” by 68”), or a Table Runner (40” by 17”) from the pattern.

This traditional circular design incorporates nine-patches with hexagons and triangles. Using Marti Michell templates, we will learn how to accurately piece the geometric shapes from both the 60 degree and 90 degree family in the same design. Choose your favorite fabric theme and join us for this class. It will look great on your accomplished quilter resume!

Cost for the workshop is $20 with a minimum of 12 participants.
