Memory Quilt Class
In this class you will create a quilt from pieces of clothing. Remember Parents, Grandparents or anyone with these special quilts? Life is Good Pattern by Bean Counter Quilts will be used to showcase the fabrics. Cotton clothing is preferred but others can be used as well. If any of the clothing is very thin or stretchy material interfacing can be added to keep it stable. 7-14 pieces of clothing is required for a 64.5” x 78” lap size quilt. The more articles of clothing the more variation you’ll have in your quilt and the more interesting it will be! We will discuss options for finishing the quilt in class but the finishing will be competed outside of class. A sewing machine is required ( bring your own) or available for rent. Any questions please call Lisa Nagel @ 507-420-3178
