Quilting Classes

 Spring Semester Quilt Classes

February 10 Week Session

Each Monday, February 27 -  May 1, 2017

(class will NOT meet April 10)

Afternoon class, 1:00 – 4:00 

Evening class, 5:30 – 8:30


“Let’s Play with Panels”

Instructor: Judy Babbidge

What can you make with a panel, you ask? Consider a quick baby quilt, table topper, bed runner, couch scarf, lap quilt, wall hanging . . . . .shall we continue?

This 10 week session will begin with pencil, ruler, graph paper (provided by the teacher) and a cotton fabric panel (provided by you). During the first class, we will begin by oooohing and aaaahing over all the pretty and fun panels, and then get down to work looking at border possibilities and design options for our own panels. A sewing machine won’t be needed for the first class, but it will be for following classes. The primary goal of this session will be to focus on finishing techniques, including borders, backing, sandwiching, battings, quilting and binding.

The recommended book for this session is “Learn to Quilt with Panels, Turn any Fabric Panel into a Unique Quilt” by Carolyn S. Vagts. A few of these books will be available for purchase at the first class for about $11.00.

Please call the RSU #39 Adult Ed. office at 493-4272 for additional information.

As always, beginners are encouraged to join us.  And if you are already working on a project that you want to finish, this would be a good time for that, too.
