At the end of your 12-month journey, you?ll be amazed at what you?ve done! You will have made an incredible quilt -- your own personal, one-of-a-kind creation. The only requirements are your energy, imagination, patience with the creative process and adventurous spirit! 2 Payment Options: (Paid in Advance): $100 for 6 months (Due 10/26 & 3/21) Or $175/year (due 10/26)

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

These sample cards are meant as a guide. You should choose your own combinations of fabrics to make your quilt unique. You will be using 10 fabrics plus a neutral background fabric. 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. Or you can participate in our pot luck lunch - just bring whatever you want to share, and bring your own drinks.
