It includes the instructional DVD, templates, pattern and a great Yazzi bag. The monthly class is free when you purchase
Continuum from us. You must have taken the Westalee/Sew Steady Guide Class before you take Continuum.

Rose Ann has gone to great lengths to acquire enough additional Modern Antiques fabric for everybody’s quilts.
We are currently waiting on a new printing of the background fabric and cutting kits for the rest of the batik blocks.
Once the batik block kits are complete, we will use the rest of those fabrics to
complete the setting kits (upwards of 70 fabrics, for a truly scrappy quilt).

Log Cabins for Beginners - $40
Log cabin quilts are a perennial favorite among quilters, but they are not as easy as they look! With multitudes of parallel

You will learn the best way to cut the fabric, and how to press to keep your blocks square. We will be making the
traditional day and night block, and will review the many ways to lay out this block. The
quilt in the shop is made with the traditional barn raising set and measures about 55 inches square.
