Pieced quilt making is a tradition that has been passed from generation to generation in Appalachia since the colonial era. In this workshop, participants will learn to make their own quilt squares in the historic log cabin pattern, a beloved and popular design that has been in use for at least 200 years. Pieces will be cut and sewn by hand, and participants will walk away with a square that can be adapted into a place mat or a potholder. Participants 10 and up welcome. All supplies will be provided.
