Join us for the Chicago Ridge Library’s Block of the Month where we will construct our quilt for the 2017-2018 year, “Jelly Roll Jam.” Designed and taught by textile artist Eileen Uchima, exclusively for our program, the project is a sampler-style quilt using the popular 2-1/2" pre-cut strip bundles known as "Jelly Rolls." Each month, participants will receive patterns and demonstrations of techniques used in one of the blocks. Members will then complete their own blocks at home, bringing them back for a show-and-tell at the next months’ class. PLUS: as an added bonus, each month you will receive a layout for another quilt featuring the current block. Come every month and you will have patterns to construct eight...or even more...quilts!
