Heritage Quilting Bee

Nov 26

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 workshop 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 usually meets on the fourth Monday of the month (in November it's the fifth Monday). You can join at any time.

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.
