eggplant relish quilt class


Eggplant Relish
Kathy Shaker
Tues, Mar 4

We couldn't resist another fun quilt from Madison Cottage. We love them for their simple strip cutting… but with triangles this time! Use a coordinating set of fat quarters or pre-cut 2 1/2" strips to make this elegant design in a variety of sizes. The finished quilt appears complex, but strip piecing and simple cutting make it easier than it looks.
