This quilt is a modern take on the traditional cross block used during World War 1 to raise money for the American Red Cross. No two crosses in this quilt are alike, with partial and “ghost” crosses appearing throughout. Your quilt will be uniquely yours, with improvised cross blocks, different fabric textures, and the way you design and construct the background. Class finishes with a discussion about quilting techniques for creating the “ghost” images.

We will reschedule the class for another day, based on classroom and instructor availability.

A Friendly Reminder For A Healthy Classroom
If you have a cold, flu symptoms, or a lingering cough, please be considerate of fellow classmates and the instructor by staying home and taking care of yourself. Call the store in advance to let us know you are not feeling well, and we will do what we can to accommodate your illness.
Along the same lines, we have many students who are sensitive to perfumes and scented lotions; please avoid wearing such products to class.
Thank you!
