Do you have a family heirloom that you would like to save and use? This class is a perfect way to feature a favorite handkerchief or embroidery piece in a “Mug Rug/Mini Quilt”. The completed project is about 7 inches square.  We will start with a feature piece and add strips of fabric and lace/trims/doilies to complete our “Mini Quilt” complete with binding.  Learn basic quilting/piecing skills.  Suitable for beginner quilters.  Don’t worry if you don’t have any vintage linens or lace scraps.  Michelle will bring some to share if needed.
