Jelly Roll Beach Blanket / Friday night class

Friday night fun = Saturday beach and sun!

This class is for “All Sewers” with basic sewing skills who are comfortable using a sewing machine.

Learn how to chain piece and make diagonal seams in your fabric strips.  You’ll also learn how to make a button hole! LOL  No batting required for this “quilt”. Just 2 jelly rolls (not the ones you eat!), 2 BIG buttons, and 1 1/2 yards of canvas/duck to make this great quilt to use outdoors on sand or turf.  It folds up into a bag so you can bring along all kinds of things.  Leave it in the trunk of your car and you’ll be ready to go at a moments notice.  Makes a great gift!  So quick and easy to make you’ll have it done by the end of class!

Free Motion Quilting | Tutorial

No need for a long arm machine if you quilt your project in sections! This is a sports quilt made from team jerseys, and it’s being put together in rows – so each row can be quilted before finally being pieced together. The trick is to pick a steady tempo and do a little portion at a time. Don’t rush – and practice first!!
