In this class, you will learn everything you need to make a simple quilt from start to finish. We will focus on: cutting accurately, seam allowance, matching seams, sewing blocks together, measuring and fitting borders, sandwiching & basting, simple quilting, and binding your quilt. By the end, you should have a completed quilt!
Materials & supplies you will need:
-Sewing machine*, thread, scissors, pins and the usual sewing supplies
-1 yard each in two coordinating fabrics (you may choose these at the first class if you wish
-1/4 yard of one contrast fabric for a border (you may choose this at the second class)
-1 baby sized batting or 1 yard of batting at least 45" wide (you may get this for the third class)
-1 yard of fabric for the backing (you may choose this at the third class)
Optional: ruler, cutting mat & rotary cutter. If you keep quilting after this class you'll want to own these, but for the first class you can use ours.
*limited number of sewing machines will be available to borrow and must be booked in advance. It is always better to be learning on your own machine - it's the one you will be using at home!
Class capped at 6 participants to ensure one-on-one instructor time. 10 total hours of class time.
