Quilt Coat Class



This will be a 2 day intensive to learn to make a quilt coat.  This is an intermediate level class.  Students should have good working knowledge of their sewing machines.  

Class will run 9am-4pm both days.  You may bring food and snacks.  There is a refrigerator available for class use.  

Students will need a minimum 70" x 70" finished quilt (does not necessarily need to be bound).

This is a 2-day class. On the first day we will focus on layout and construction. The second day we will focus on finishes. If time permits, we will do a small bonus project with scraps on day two. You must know how to operate your machine well if attending this class.
