Join us for a fresh approach to quilting!  Simple, flexible and appropriate for all sewing levels.  Let’s play with beautiful fabric that, once collaged together, will create a really striking and modern look.  While the class will detail what you need to know to complete the Around the World quilt top, participants may choose to work on this or another of Shannon’s Scrappy Bits Appliqué templates.   Templates may be purchased the day of the workshop from Shannon, or ordered/downloaded and printed beforehand from her website, www.Shannon-brinkley.com .  


We are going to have a blast!  Will you be there?
