You will get to pick a picture from a box full of them (it is a blind pick; you won’t get to see the pictures first). The challenge is to use that picture as an inspiration for a quilt measuring 20” x 20”. You can recreate the picture, or use it as a starting point for something entirely different. For example, if the picture evokes an emotion in you, you could make a quilt that reflects that. If it’s a picture of the ocean, you could make a fish quilt. If there is a theme in the picture that appeals to you, you could make a quilt about that. We are going to include the kids, too. There will be prizes for different age groups.

Rag Basket
- Jun 22, 2018 06:00 pm

“Rag Basket” may be a misleading name for these lovely bowls! Rag bowls have been made since the beginning of time, it seems. They have found some form of bowls that are wrapped into a coil in many archeological digs, that go back for centuries. In more recent history, rag bowls were made in Appalachia along with rag rugs that were known to hold up over time. Rag bowls are sturdy, versatile and fun to make. This class will provide instructions for making a small bowl and hopefully have you leaving with your bowl and all you need to make more. Be careful - it is addictive, but if you are a quilter and/or sewing "nut", you know all about that!!! One very good thing is that it allows you to use up scraps of material that you might otherwise just have sitting around the house.
