accent colors in them. I made all of mine in blues & I’m anxious to make them again in reds. You can choose any color
combinations that you want.

Applique experience required.
The class will meet once a month for 12 months starting June 16th (3rd Sunday of each month). If anyone is interested in a
Thursday afternoon class (3rd Thursday of each month), I will be accepting names & when we have at least 6 students we
will choose a start date. There will be a few breaks in the schedule so that everyone can stay caught up & a break to enjoy
the Holiday season (no August or November classes).
We will help you to choose your own color combination so that you can match your Baltimore quilt to your home décor.
We have scheduled the class fee to be paid in two installments of $85.00 each. First payment is due at time of registration
& 2nd installment is due by January 1st. This includes the $50.00 pattern cost.
Each student will receive a full size pattern with color cover each month.
