LEARN TO QUILT!
We designed this class to give you a thorough introduction to quilt making from beginning to end. You'll learn how to construct those traditional quilt blocks that are the foundation of most quilts, while having the freedom and flexibility to create a quilt top that is as modern as you are.
Once your quilt top is complete, you'll learn how to baste, quilt, and bind your quilt as well. In six weeks, you'll go through the whole process of making a small quilt. This sample is ~20"x20" but yours doesn't have to be the same--that's the beauty of this class!
You'll learn how to construct basic blocks (4 Patch, 9 Patch, Fence Rail, & Log Cabin) as well as slightly more complicated blocks (Flying Geese, Hourglass, Pinwheel). You'll also improve your rotary cutting skills, practice using a 1/4" foot & a walking foot, learn how to add sashing, and make & attach your binding. If you plan on making this quilt a wall hanging, we'll teach you different ways of making that possible, too!
