Jelly Roll Rug Class


Jelly Roll Rug with Sasher Tool

Instructor: Shannon Gill

Friday, July 26th

Class Time:  9 am – 5 pm

Class Fee: $30

Please join us for a fun filled day at the Sisters Quilt Shop Studio to learn how to master the jelly roll rug.  Using the Jelly Roll Sasher tool you will save a couple hours on making your jelly roll rugs and some wear and tear on your fingers! Stop by our shop ahead of time and get personalized assistance choosing fabrics for your jelly roll!  Then you will be able to have all your favorite fabrics in the rug!!

O.C.D. much? Go scrappy with your rug and work on allowing more freedom in your quilting.  Our photos depicts a jelly roll rug with the fabric in order using the Fig Tree fabric line  but you can mix the fabric order up also.  It is always fun seeing how the different fabrics make entirely different, but lovely rug for years of enjoyment!  This rug makes a wonderful gift too!

Please be on time as class will start promptly at 9 am.  We will need all the time allotted to complete our rugs.  We request that you are familiar with your machine, especially with your walking foot and zig-zag stitch and adjustment of that stitch. You will need a machine that will make a minimum 5 mm wide zig-zag stitch.
