SERENGETI - A MYSTERY QUILT BOOK CLUB
Join The Quilter’s Trunk for our exciting Mystery Quilt Block of the Month and Book Club, featuring the Elm Creek Quilts series by Jennifer Chiaverini. We have partnered with local independent bookstore, Bookie’s New and Used Books, to bring you this Club.
Each month, you will read one of the Elm Creek Quilts books. At the monthly meeting, you will receive a kit for the block in the title and learn how to create it. Following the demonstration, you will engage in a lively discussion of the book. The Club runs for 12 months, beginning in October 2017 and continuing through September 2018. At the end of the Club, you will have created 12 beautiful blocks. TQT will have a finishing kit available for both sizes with sashing, binding, and backing.
