Quilting class

MONMOUTH – The Cumston Public Library Association Books and Summer Programming will sponsor a “bow tie” quilting class from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesdays, Feb. 2 through March 30, at the lower level of the library, Main Street.

Instructors will be Nancy Ludewig and Jeri Kahl, and the cost is $20 for nine weeks. Photos of the block may be seen and an informational sheet may be picked up at the library.

The bow tie pattern is simple enough for beginners and fun enough for experienced quilters. With a simple turn of the bow tie block, a different design can be made. Create one block for a pillow or many blocks for a quilt of any size.

For more information, call 933-4788. The library is wheelchair accessible.
