Convergence Quilt - March 19 & 22

  1. Choose a FOCUS print. It should be a medium to large pattern (no stripes or plaids). Buy 1/2 to 1 yard of your focus fabric depending on how much you want to put in the border.
  2. Choose 3 fabrics that coordinate with your focus fabric. Buy a FQ (fat quarter) of each of these 3 fabrics.
  3. From each of your 4 fabrics cut a 15" square.
  4. Bring your four 15" squares and the leftover pieces and be ready to converge.
