~Fun & Done Quilt~
Instructor: Cindy Mengel-Smith
Satisfy your need for speed with an easy quilt-as-you-go technique!
We will be making a colorful 15” x 45” table runner using the “Street Smart Quilt” pattern from Fun & Done Quilting. Fun&Done! Quilting is a fast and easy quilt-as-you-go technique, as the quilting is completed as each block is constructed. Sew the blocks together, and you’re done! Now that’s fun! It’s all done by machine, and the binding is the fastest technique that you’ve ever seen.
The Batting Buddy (pictured above) is NOT required. However, almost everyone who tries one loves it! The motto of Fun&Done! is “satisfy your need for speed”. The Batting Buddy takes your project up to rocket speed!
Some pre-work is required. Fabric requirements and pre-work instructions will be supplied upon class registration.Date: Tuesday, April 17th from 10:30am - 3:30pm
Class Fee: $20 + $9 pattern. Optional Batting Buddy available in the shop for $22.To register, either click the picture above, click HERE to sign up online or simply call the shop at (610)900-4700.
