In 1863 Jane A. Stickle made a quilt with Two Hundred and Twenty-Five unique 4½ inch
blocks. She sat and sewed these blocks during the American Civil War using tiny
scraps of fabric she had probably saved from making clothes for herself and her family.
Join a group of fellow minded quilters who want to have a “go” at making their own
version of this wonderful quilt. Not so much a taught class as a discussion group
on the best way to tackle each block! American piecing, English paper piecing and
foundation piecing will be some of the techniques used. And don’t forget applique!
Term classes Wednesday Afternoon.
