Happy Birthday

In this workshop, you will design and make a quilt based on your birth month and day. You will bring half-square triangles already sewn. Then we will sew groupings based on your birth month and day. After lunch, we will work with these two groups to design our very own special block and quilt. There are many possible designs for each date, so no two will look alike.  This is a really fun experience!
