Rag Quilt Class

  • niche creative studio 4706 Common Street Lake Charles, LA, 70607 United States (map)

How about a Mardi Gras Rag Quilt? We have new Mardi Gras and Louisiana Fabrics in stock!

Rag quilts are fun and easy projects for people at ANY skill level looking to make quilts. You quilt as you go, which makes this quilt fast and less expensive than a traditional quilt. Rag quilts get their name because one side is smooth, while the other side has the seams out that are ragged.  It's washable & soft too. Once you learn to make this quilt, you will be sewing a ton of them for birthday gifts, baby showers, and graduation gifts! 

You can bring your machine or use one of our Janome Sewist 500s!

 

Sunday, February 17th, 1-4pm

*For this class, we make the baby quilt size to ensure you see the process from start to finish.  Larger sizes like the kids or adult stadium quilt sizes can be made as well but will not be finished that night.  Email sewing@nichecreativestudio.com if you are interested in making a larger size for additional supply info.

Kits are also available in studio that have the correct amount of coordinating, designer fabrics in lots of styles.  *If you decide to bring in your fabric from home or another store, we'd be happy to cut all of it for you before class for a cutting fee of $10 (any size and includes cutting flannel as well).

~ 1 1/4 yards of flannel in coordinating color (White usually works great for most quilts)

Rag quilts are a great project for sewist at any skill level and make great gifts.  The size we will be sewing measures approximately 40x35" and is good for baby, crib, and kids blankets; however once you learn the basic techniques, you can do this quilt in kids and adult stadium quilt sizes. 

If you have a machine at home, bring it with you. It's always good to sew on a machine you are comfortable with.  If you don't have a machine, we can provide you with one.
