Learn to Make a Cute & Cozy RAG QUILT!

Getting there
4610 MAGAZINE ST., New Orleans, LA

Learn to make a cute and comfy rag quilt, with Bette Ransom! Rag quilts get their name because of the fuzzy frayed seam allowances that show on the right side of the quilt after laundering. There are normally 2-4 (or more) layers of fabric in a rag quilt.
Bette will show you how to make the "Squares & Circles" rag quilt. In this class you will complete 4 squares of your quilt, which will get you on your way to completing this super cute quilt for a kid in your life, or as a throw for yourself! It is fun, fast and so cozy! You will choose 2 main colors, then add other coordinating colors (think color wheel). You will need 1 fat quarter of each of your 2 main colors, then a few more fat quarters of your coordinates. You may purchase your fabrics, batting and backing in our shop at our usual 15% class discount. Bring your own working sewing machine (or use one of ours). Threads and supplies are furnished. You may wait until the day of class to decide what size quilt you will make. The ones pictured here are throw (or child) size. $42/person. (the quilt shown above is a work in progress and has not been laundered. The quilt below has been laundered.)
