Quilt Group Mini Lesson

image

On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving our quilt group has usually had only 5-8 people attend.

I came up with an idea to hopefully get more people to be there.

These are a few of the 40 people who were there.

This is another view of the blocks the participants created.

I had prepared 4 1/2 inch squares for people to work with.

Some of them had Wonder Under on the back and others did not.

Using one of the WU backed squares and cutting it into strips or some other shape, and fusing it to two different background squares participants were able to create two blocks that gave a totally different design.

Everyone enjoyed the exercise and they now can use the idea in their own work.
