Rock That Quilt Block Trunk Show

2:00pm to 3:30pm


Through an extensive trunk show, Linda shares her concept on how to "rock" a block.  Change a color, rotate a patch, or perhaps divide a patch and you have a whole new "flavor" of the block.  Sometimes combining several rocked blocks give you surprising secondary or tertiary patterns - depending on the colors chosen.  A real eye opener!
