Modern Square in a Square - Weekend Warrior Mini Retreat

Join us for a weekend mini-retreat in the East Coast Quilt co. classroom! Lunches for both days of the weekend are catered by Mickey's Sandwhich Shop - Yum!

The Modern Square in a Square workshop uses 42 @ 10inch x10inch squares. It is ideal for layer cakes, but we can also work with yardage.

Finished blocks are 8 inches square which will give you a quilt center measuring 48inches x 56inches

Just add binding for a modern look, or add borders to make it larger.

This makes a great cuddle quilt or gift and goes together in a snap.


Quilt Center - 42 @ 10inch x 10inch squares
Inner Border - 0.5m
Outer Border - 1.0m 
Binding - 0.5m

Additional (recommended):
8.5inch square ruler (or larger) for squaring up blocks

This class is suited for adults (age 15+)
