Magic Maze Workshop
If you've ever wondered what to do with all those scraps accumulating in your stash, we've got a great class scheduled for that. Jean Vaillancourt will teach us the Magic Maze pattern which uses 3" squares in a variety of fabrics. Be prepared to swap fabrics in class, if you'd like, for even more variety in your quilt. Paired with 1 3/8 yds of a cream tonal or white fabric, you'll have a great looking scrappy quilt and reduce the scraps in your stash.
The class will be held at the Gilford Community Church on Thursday, March 26, 2015 from 9 am – 3 pm. The class fee is $25 for members and $30 for non-members.
