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 coasters in a traditional Appalachian pattern, an easy task for beginner quilters to learn. Pieces will be cut and sewn by hand, and participants will walk away with a coaster to take home with them. Participants 10 and up welcome. All supplies will be provided.
