“Quilting in Vermont”
with Kathie Beltz
The Strong House Inn

Join us in lovely Vergennes, Vermont for a weekend of sewing, chocolate, pampering, and fun!
Spend the weekend creating an easy quilted jacket. Basically, a layer of fabric (quilt blocks, strips, squares) is quilted to the framework of a sweatshirt, creating a jacket. The technique is easy, and can be used to make an assortment of jackets. The jacket in this class will be made of Stack-N-Slash blocks with 18 different fabrics. Buy a Layer Cake, or dig into your stash for the fabrics.
Skill Level: Confident Beginner.
