Those building blocks of quilting are being taught this week by Ellen Graf in our first Sievers in Winter class of 2013. Ten students are building their blocks into Log Cabin quilts. Ellen’s step-by-step method helps show the way for the students, some of whom are new quilters, some self-taught and some more experienced. One of Ellen’s quilts: This is one focused group of students, but they plan to take time tonight for a potluck dinner in the studio (with spouses) before class ends tomorrow. This is a Sievers in Winter class and this is Sievers, but where is winter?
