Learn to Quilt Series: Quilting with Precuts
This class is designed for the sewist interested in making their first quilt. Instead of cutting out all the components of your quilt, you will use pre-cut squares to create a baby quilt, while learning the basics of patchwork and quilt construction. Class will cover: piecing together the quilt top, basting, quilting options, and how to install a binding.
Skill level: Novice. Students should be comfortable on a sewing machine and be able to thread and wind a bobbin on their own.
