We will hold a Guild sew-a-long using the pattern Sanibel by Gina Martin which can be found at the link . Select your fabrics before we begin. A great way to use those fun summer fabrics in your stash. Think yellow polka dot bikini.
Cindy will be doing a 3 swimsuits wall hanging, but the pattern has 9. Make it with 1,, 3, 6 or whatever works for you. If you choose to start cutting ahead of time, Cindy suggests you increase the size of the half rectangle blocks to 3" X 6" instead of the 2 5/8" X 5 1/4". We will trim down to the 2 1/2" X 4 1/2" after sewing. Cindy will be logged onto Zoom about 9:30 on June 18th if you have any questions before we begin at 10:00 AM.
Please contact Cindy Strickland at Cindy's Email or (843) 295-7451 if you would like to attend.
