About the Class
Ages 16 and up
Show you team spirit (or your other favorite fabrics) with this fast and fun lap quilt. It’s perfect for staying warm in or out of the stadium. This quilt uses an easy “Fold and Sew” method for making square-in-a-square blocks. That means no cutting and no piecing. We will then quilt and join it together using a popular Quilt-As-You-Go method that makes it stress free to quilt on your standard sewing machine. This is a fun quilt for beginners with little sewing experience, or for more experienced quilters wishing to learn more about the QAYG method. The finished quilt size is 43″ X 43″.
What you need to bring:
Fabric #1: focus fabric for smaller squares = 1 yard
Fabric #2: background fabric for larger squares = 2 yards
Fabric #3: front joining and binding strips = 1 yard

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.
