Message In a Bottle Sew Along

Designed by internationally recognized quilt artist Irene Blanck, Message In a Bottle combines applique and piecing to capture the look of Down-Under quilts. Irene designed the quilt from her home base in Australia so that she could incorporate different script and newsprint fabrics. The playful arrangement of flowers and quilt blocks along with the printed word creates an eye-catching quilt that has plenty to say. During this six-month class, you will make your own version of a quilt defined by its clever play on words. The Sew Along Our will offer lots of quilting tips and tricks, and special surprises unique to Southern Charm.
