Meets the 4thThursday each month for 3 months beginning Thurs. Jan. 25, 2018

The Cut Loose Bubbles pattern for a 64” x 80” twin quilt is used. It would be easy to make it larger by making more blocks, or adding borders.

Cut Loose Bubbles pattern and the 8” Curvy Log Cabin ruler are required. 
$25.00, plus supplies
