Past Events 2020

January 18, 2020 – Third Saturday
Colleen Granger’s Chugach Range Class ($25)
–  The Chugach Range is the northern most mountain range in the state of Alaska. This quilt is created using one 40 – 2 1/2″ strip set. Borders are extra. It can also be done scrappy. The possibilities are endless. Create your pieces then off you go to the design wall. It is so much fun watching these quilts evolve. Use Colleen’s method of the “drunken border” to use up the remaining fabric units – no leftovers! See the photos before the sample arrives at her website.
