Join Jane to make this vintage-look quilt! She was inspired by a design by Heather French, called French Roses, but wanted to try a rag-quilt approach. You'll love the simple raw edge-appliqe process. Use either free motion or regular stitching to quilt each block separately, then join them with exposed seam allowances, for a shabby chic style. If you want that extra cuddly heirloom feel, wash your quilt on a high agitating cycle, dry it, and start snipping threads! Call if you want a kit like Jane's, or come in and choose your own combination of petals for your garden! 10% discount on all class supplies and on anything you buy on the day of your class!
