Heritage Quilting Bee

We decided it was time to have a quilting bee specifically designed for quilters who love to work with reproduction fabrics. To that end, this year's wokshop is focusing on a beautiful and unique quilt called "It's Not a Square" which uses Carol Hopkins book "The 4" x 5" Anthology".  The finished quilt contains 72 blocks and measures 57" x 78". ***
The group meets regularly on the fourth Monday of the month. Each month you cut out and start work on six different 4" x 5" blocks. During the workshop, Sue details the blocks, adding helpful hints and tips based on her experience making the blocks. The book is required - the workshops are free of charge.

Skill Level: Confident Beginner

***The story behind this quilt is an interesting one:
Carol Hopkins, the noted designer, and a group of her friends challenged each other to swap blocks that measured 4" x 5".  They recreated some classic blocks and also designed more than 50 original blocks that no one had ever seen, ending up with 182 different blocks. Carol then developed the book - "The 4" x 5" Anthology" -  that contains instructions for making all of these blocks. It is a treasure trove that you will find useful to own.
