Lap Quilt Club at MAC center!
Each month Jenny’s Sewing Studio will introduce a brand new quilting skill or Quilt block in our lecture demo Lap Quilt series at the MAC center in Salisbury, MD. Sessions are only $5.00 each and will be scheduled in the Bradford room at 2:00 pm each month. You can enroll using my web site shopping cart at this link. You can also register at the door.
Our first meeting is Thursday January 31st at 2:00pm. The series will be lecture demonstration and you will learn the steps needed to start your quilt. Beginners are welcome. I will demonstrate some of the basic tools needed for quilting. This month I will also introduce electric quilt to help you visually understand how your quilt will look and how much yardage you will need to create your quilt. We will talk about fabric choices and make a few templates. Plan on the session taking about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Bring paper and pen for notes.
I suggest you purchase the Lap Quilting book which contains patterns for 70 Lap Quilt blocks. Attend as many months as you can and work along with me each month to complete your quilt. I will hold a Show and Tell session at the beginning of each club meeting once we get sarted.
Lap Quilt Sew Along!
Following each monthly Lap Quilt club meeting I will hold a Lap Quilt Sew Along at my Sewing Studio at 1030 South Schumaker Dr, in Salisbury, MD. My first Sew Along for Lap Quilting is February 7, 2019. The fee is $20.00 per session. Enroll for the 1:30 – 3:30 pm session or the 6:30 to 8:30 session. Class is once a month. This class is designed to help all beginner quilters with hands on sewing help while you are constructing the quilt. Classes are limited to 6 sewers.
Bring your sewing machine or reserve one of my machines to use in class. Bring Lap Quilting by Georgia Bonesteel, template plastic, a black sharpie marker, a wash away marker, clover chalk triangle for dark fabrics and a ruler to begin making templates for your quilt. We will make a few templates and cut a few blocks. Let’s get started making your quilt.
For the quilt blocks I suggest you color coordinate at least 4 different 100% cotton fabric prints for your blocks. Bring at least one yard of 4 different fabrics to mark and cut. That way you have choices when designing the blocks. We can add more prints later. You can also buy more yardage of a favorite print. The choices are up to you. Bring your fabrics to class.
You can always bring scraps of 100% cotton fabrics and border the blocks later with a neutral color like off white or black. We will talk about borders, backing and binding in another class.
Bring a neutral color thread like off white or black.
I hope to see you in class.
