Barn Quilt Painting Workshop with Suzi Parron

Event Date and Time: 

06/02/2017 - 9:00am

Join the barn quilt movement by creating your own painted quilt block.  You will begin with a pre-primed board and go through each step—drafting, taping, and painting, with careful attention to detail. 
 
The workshop lasts about 4 hours.   You will leave with a finished quilt block or with one last color (which will be provided) to add at home.  The finished product will be two-by-two feet and is the perfect size for mounting on smaller buildings.
