It is amazing to see the progress the members have made in only three class meetings. The first meeting was spent learning how to read the pattern and cut the strips for the quilt blocks, using a rotary cutter and special cutting mats. At the second class meeting, members learned how to sew the strips together and cut them into perfectly sized quilt blocks. On Tuesday evening, during the third class, members learned how to lay out the quilt blocks to determine the pattern they liked the best. Following this, members began stitching the blocks together with careful pressing along the way.
Michelle has made learning how to make a quilt an easy process for everyone. Members are having a fun time while creating a gift made from the heart for those in our Aerie who have either served in the past or are currently serving. Each and every quilt is being made with lots of love and extra special care! Information on how to join the class is on the Honor Quilters page on the website. Members who wish to join now will be in the next class, which should be starting in the fall, perfect timing for quilt making! The photos below were taken during Tuesday's class...enjoy!
