Window Focus Group

New Focus Group on Window Quilts by Eleanor Reilly

What would you like to see when you look out your window?  Now is the time to dream.  Starting with a panel of your choosing, the panel will be cut for the window panes, the frame constructed, and an object or pet added to the window sill.  Techniques used include piecing, appliqué, and trapunto. 

Meetings will occur every other Monday, on Zoom, at 7 PM, beginning on June 26th.  If you would like to join in the fun, please email me at, by June 15th.  I’m looking forward to sharing creative ideas with you.

Meeting Dates are Mondays unless specified.
