For beginner sewers! This is the ultimate easy quilt! Layered fabric blocks are pieced together with exposed seams then laundered to fray the fabric edges. The result is a fluffy, cozy quilt that is great when you need an extra layer to keep out the chill. This is a quick and easy, no-fail project! The finished quilt is 50” wide and 55” long.
Supplies List: 3/4 yard each of four 45” wide flannel prints
3-1/4 yard of 45” wide Flannel for quilt back
Matching sewing thread

with Pat Vermette
If you’re new to quilting, this is a beginner-friendly quilt! The quilt is made of scrap prints and a background of white fabric. I used 4½” squares, but you can use any size square you want. If you have a collection of a certain size, bring them along. This can be a completely take-along project finished by hand, or completely done by machine. Materials listed online or available in the office.
• Scrap fabric and pieces of scrap batting.
You can bring finished squares, if you like.
• Sewing machine
• Walking foot(if you have one)
• Hand sewing needles. For this project, I like to use an applique needle,
but whatever you are comfortable with.
Note: Do not cut the batting squares, they will be cut at anywhere between 5 and 8 inches or more, depending upon your finished block. You will cut them in class.
*NOTE: There will be no class on Nov 22 or Nov 30.
