Cortez Quilt Company and More is getting ready to embark on a new machine embroidery Block Of The Month program. This quilt is called Imaginary Day. The pattern includes the instructions for either a 60” X 60” or 84” X 84” quilt.Linda Humphreys will be leading this class. An organizational meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, May 15th at 2:00. The plan is to meet the first Wednesday of each month for six months, starting in June. Linda will give a tutorial for that month’s blocks, then participants will go home to stitch out the designs. If you are unable to make the organizational meeting, but wish to have further info, please call us at 970-565-7541.
We can take sign-ups for one more week.
