Beginning Quilting Class

Come learn the basics of quilting while constructing a small baby quilt.  You will leave this class knowing how to choose and use thread, needles, cutters and rules, and how to choose the best fabrics for your project.  You will learn how to construct a nine patch and half square triangle blocks and how strip piecing makes block construction easy and fast!  All of this is done while meeting new people and enjoying being a part of the quilt community in a small group.  Space is limited so sign up soon!  Only 8 seats available.

Prior to class:
Practice a quarter inch seam by sewing two 2.5"x 5" strips together along the 5" side. The finished piece should measure 4.5" x 5". If your piece is wider than 4.5",  your seam allowance is too narrow. If your piece is narrower, your seam allowance is too wide. Adjust your needle position accordingly accordingly.
