Crumb Quilting: Tote Bag – Digital Class • May 18 and 25

, , ,

Tuesdays, May 18 and 25, 6 – 8 pm CDT

Laura Wennstrom

Crumb quilting refers to a scrap quilting technique that uses up the smallest scraps in your stash! In this workshop, learn to piece together fabric scraps into a larger quilt block, working freely with color and design to use up your odds and ends and favorites from your stash. Then learn how to make a basic, lined tote bag using your completed crumb quilt as the main body. Students do not necessarily need to know how to quilt but they should have a good handle on basic sewing skills, a sewing machine in good working order, and a solid working knowledge of how to use it. An optional supply kit can be ordered for $30 plus tax (order at least one week before class begins)–or feel free to use supplies from your stash! Information is on the supply list.
