Quilters Dream and Door Prizes
Karen Miller loves Dream Wool and suggests it for use in our April Pillow Top project. Thanks to the efforts of Marie G. Quilters Dream will be providing 4  throw-size batting packs which can be cut up to provide enough of the 16” x 30” piece of batting needed for the project for everyone taking the class.

In addition, they are  sending sample cards for all the Guild members and some door prizes!  How wonderful is that?
