Done When They're Done Denim Quilts

Choose between Denim Stars, Brick Work or Windows denim quilt patterns. These quilts are done when they’re done. There’s no quilting or tying to do afterwards. Make them in small sections that fit inside your sewing machine throat. You can substitute denim with flannel and you can add Shannon Cuddle for the inside fabric. It’s a great way to use up those old jeans you ‘ve been saving. Taught by Annette Rose. Class fee: $12.  Taught Thursday, September 28, 10:00 am or Tuesday, October 3, 6:30 pm.
