Cuddle Care

We have planned another round robin assembly of nine-patch quilt tops. The fabric will be pre cut, so this is going be a stress-free, social event.

The only thing you need to bring is your sewing machine threaded with white thread.

Not in the mood to load your machine? No problem…come anyway. We will need pinners, cutters, gophers, and someone to iron. The completed tops will be stockpiled to be long arm quilted in July at Quilted Joy.
