About the Class
Ages 16 and up

Come out and learn a fast and fun way to make a quilted throw. Then, quilt it yourself with your standard home sewing machine in small, manageable pieces using the decorative stitches on your machine. The best part is you will never have to work with any more than 18″ of your quilt under the throat of your sewing machine at one time.
What is a jelly roll? A jelly roll is 42-44 strips of fabric that are 2 ½ inches wide x 43” inches long. Fabric shops sell pre-cut jelly rolls, but you can make your own by cutting strips from your fabric stash. This makes a beautiful scrap quilt.
What you need to bring:
1 jelly roll
3 ½ yards fabric for backing
1 ½ yards fabric for binding and joining strips
3 ½ yards batting. Suggested: thin, needled cotton
1 spool of neutral color thread for piecing
2-3 spools of thread for quilting
Sewing machine, rotary cutter, cutting mat, acrylic ruler, iron, ironing pad, seam ripper, large, curved safety pins, scissors
Class Fee $35/member, $40/non-member
About Your Teacher, Lynn Davis
Lynn Davis has had a love for many fiber arts since childhood. Quilts are particularly special to her for their rich history and tradition of being stitched with love and out of necessity to keep a family warm. Lynn’s personal journey with quilts began in 2010 when she joined a local quilt guild. Her favorite quilts to make are one that are fast, fun and done. She now enjoys sharing the tips and techniques that she has tried with others, especially beginners, who want to tell their own story and wrap someone else in stitches of love and warmth.
