Reserve your space in our Square in a Square quilting classes to begin Tuesday, January 2, 2024! There will be a lesson in the morning and the next lesson after lunch. We'll complete this quilt in 7 weeks! See the schedule below. We will create this amazing Sampler Quilt using just squares and strips! No triangles or Y seams! Just squares, strips, sew, trim and chain together! Beginner to Advanced students welcome!

You'll love this class! Choose your favorite color wave below (or choose multiple projects) and we will PRECUT the fabric and have it ready for you to sew at class time! Yes, you read it correctly, we will precut the squares and strips to have ready for you to sew at class time.

Kisses From Your Beloved is a Sampler Quilt using the Square in a Square technique developed by Jodi Barrows. I have taught this quilt multiple times. The students have been early beginning students to advanced quilters. Each student has completed their block assignments and you can, too! In class, we will create the 12 sampler blocks (1 per lesson), a lesson on creating the 9 patch sashing and the final lesson will help you with the quilt layout. Note: Class #14 - Quilt Layout class will be No charge!

 Kisses From your Beloved includes a Civil War love story of letters shared between Duvall and Sadie. One letter for each quilt block. The sampler book has full color photos for each quilt block and instructions to complete the quilt. We will work through the quilt piecework together.
