HOOPSISTERS 2018 BLOCK OF THE MONTH “SISTERHOOD”
Join Debby in making this beautiful Celtic inspired quilt. We will be running this as a 5 Month program plus a bonus “Put-Together” Class. The quilt is majorly done as applique and repeats the design amongst the four quadrants. You can elect to do 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 inch squares depending on the size of your hoop. The optional border is not part of the directed program. There is no better way than to learn the embroidery side of your machine than to .participate in a Hoopsisters quilt.

Hoop large enough to accommodate the selected block size.
