In last week's newsletter, I showed you the Piccadilly Squares quilt that Heather Dunn will be teaching Mon, Jan 31 and Mon, Feb 7, 6:00 - 9:00. You may remember I mentioned an alternate Valentines option that will be available in class? How cute did Heather's Hugs & Kisses version turn out! Using the same Piccadilly Squares pattern and EasyPiecing Grid technique, she simply added a few half-square triangles to turn the block centers into X's & O's. We're in LOVE and you will be too, especially when you see how easy this quilt comes together with perfectly aligned points using the grid by TenSisters Handicraft. There are only a few seats remaining for this fun class! Register today and choose either the Hugs & Kisses (above) or standard Piccadilly Squares (below). Either way, you'll come away with a darling quilt top set 'on-point' and be hooked on the grid!
