Travel Journal Quilts
Nov 22 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
Travel Journal Quilts @ Rocky Hill Grange, East Greenwich

In this 1 day, class students will begin work on a Travel Journal quilt. We will paint the map, the main focal point of the quilt, then combine maps, photos, journaling, and other saved items into a unique, personal wall hanging. Students will need to bring along photos and postcards printed onto fabric to use in the layout of the quilt. I will demonstrate making a simple raw edge fabric collage element to use. As it is a 1-day class I run through the project and get students started and on their way to completing this project at home.

 

Fee:  $40, Materials Fee: $5
