Day: Wednesday, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Location: Madison Room
Teacher: Stacy Michell
Level: All levels
Member: $48 Retail: $60

Unlike scrap Log Cabin quilts that feature a different fabric in every strip of a block and require hundreds of prints, this scrappy “Kailua Cabin” quilt depends on orderly repetition of fabrics within each block. The trick to the organized mess of the scrap quilt is made simple by fabric selection in groups of four fat quarters. Additionally, the correct fabric arrangement for cutting simplifies the whole process again. The four blocks from the class are the perfect start for a larger quilt and can also be finished as a small wallhanging or four pillows. Join Stacy for a fun evening and create updated Log Cabin blocks using tropical prints and bright colors!
