Saturday "Magic" Quilt Class

You start with a checkerboard quilt of 5 1/2" squares and 3" border.

Then carefully mark cutting lines with a "magic template"

provided with the class.

You mark & cut squares apart, 4 at a time.

Then sew the squares into pinwheel blocks.

WHAT FUN! This is my "trust me" quilt half finished.

The class was held at Woodland Quilts in Whitewater, WI. A cute shop with lots of display samples to drool over. Cheryl has a variety of fabrics, books and the latest gadgets. Everyone seemed to find something they couldn't live without while shopping afterwards.

Kathi & Jean hold their checkerboard starter quilt. The quilts on the bottom row are the class samplers.

Pat & Peggy showing off their "before & afters".

Barb and Patti our mother-daughter team.

Maddy used Christmas fabrics for hers. Judy and Mary must of been hiding when I took the after pictures. I know both had a few rows of pinwheels when we finished. There should be plenty of show & tell at our September "Sew Whats" meeting!


  1. Wow, that is really something else. The fabrics even look different in the second pattern. What a neat class!
