Circle of Sisters by Karen Styles
Each block measures 27” square and is hand stitched
This Vintage quilt, Circle of Sisters, was originally made in the 1950’s by a quilting group of friends. Each of the blocks was different but together they make an interesting display. We will focus on one block during class and you can continue to make 4, 6 or 9 blocks later, or perhaps turn the finished block into a lovely cushion! My version has a total of 9 blocks.
You will need the Circle of Sisters Pattern & Template Set which is available for pre-order through Pieceful Gathering Quilt Shop. Please pre-order this item by March 27th so we can be sure to have everything here in time.
