We just fell in love with this quilt by Wing and a Prayer! Resembling a kaleidoscope, the Mystical Prism quilt uses traditional piecing with unusual fabric color combinations. This block of the month begins in September and will run for 6 months.

The Spring weather has inspired a thirst for COLOR, so when we saw the Pixie Medallion quilt we immediately squeezed it into the schedule! The Pixie Medallion by Sharon McConnell of Color Girl Quilts, is inspired by the classic medallion style quilt and it is full of fresh color border after border!! With every border is a new opportunity to play with fabric and color as well as try new piecing techniques. This four class series is a perfect project for confident to Intermediate quilters.
