Every Monday at 9:30 unless we are closed due to a holiday. Come join this dedicated group who make quilts for families who have experienced a tragedy in their life, for the homeless and for those who have served our country that have come home and are struggling. Their quilts have been given to children who have deployed military parents, children with cancer and women and children in shelters and the elderly in nursing homes. The group not only serves our community here in RI but has sent many quilts to victims of devastating hurricanes and to our wounded Military men and women in Afghanistan US based Hospitals.

To make this spectacular quilt you will learn to master three of Deb Tucker?s Studio 180 trim tools: the Split Rects, Tucker Trimmer, and Wing Clipper rulers.

This quilt was originally published as Walk in the Park by Linda and Carl Cullivan in the February/March 2019 issue of McCall's Quick Quilts. The whole quilt is made of half square triangles so I decided not to follow the rule of adding 7/8" to the measurements since all the blocks will be the same size. This makes for easier cutting. I am offering this quilt in three sizes: small (47" X 55"), medium (57" X 67") or large (67" X 79"). My sample is medium. It also looks great horizontally.

Cost: $ 20.00
The pattern for this 78 in x 78 in quilt appeared in Annie's Quilting with pre-cuts. Using 10 in layer cake square is a great way to save time preparing to sew. I used a softer color collection but this quilt is terrific with brightly colored squares.

Think of the 10 fabrics as 5 pairs. You can use all of one color or divide it into 2 colors. Bring your lunch or plan to go to one of the nearby restaurants.
