Sue has created two Flower Basket patterns with JWD Designs, Ashley's Flower Basket and Jessica's Flower Basket. Students will select their favorite and work on this project at the retreat. The supply list below will work for either pattern to make a one block small quilt. If you would like to make a four block version, contact Sue for these yardages. Learn all aspects of Sue's stitched raw edge applique' technique. The patterns also include an original feather design for quilting and Sue will demo and allow time to practice some machine quilting.
