Autumn Love Sew-a-Long
Add to Design Board
Sku #: cq100218


6 sessions of fun with Rebecca Traeger.

Join us for our newest sew-a-long with Lori Holt's new Autumn Love quilt. It is without a doubt the cutest Autumn themed quilt. This is an appliqued quilt with a little bit of piecing. We'll be doing Lori's method of applique so there will be no raw edges. You can then choose to stitch down the shapes with your machine with a simple zig zag or you can do hand applique. It's up to you!

We will be meeting October 2, 16, and 30; November 13 and 27; and December 11.

To join our sew-a-long, all you need to do is purchase the kit, sewing shapes, and button jar from Cottage Quilts. And, let us know you are taking the class, of course. This is a FREE class with your purchase.

Our kits are all cut and ready to go, but we do have a limited supply. So, don't delay.
