Quilt Basics 101- A 3 part class



This class will use the book "Start Quilting with Alex Anderson" to create a small sampler quilt top. As a first time quilter, you will learn how to use a ruler and rotary cutter to cut fabric into pieces to sew several basic quilt blocks- rail fence, nine-patch, nine-patch variation, square dance, log-cabin, friendship star and flying geese. You will make 25 six inch blocks that will then be sewn into rows to create the center of your quilt top. You will then learn how to add an inner and outer border to create a finished quilt top (the process of quilting and binding will be discussed but not completed during the class sessions). Some homework may be needed.

Basic sewing skills are required. You need to be familiar with the operation of your sewing machine and be able to sew a straight line.

Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before class starts to unload and set up your sewing machine, etc. We have lots to cover and want to be ready to go when class starts.

Class participants will receive a 15% discount on class supplies.
