Intro to Quilting --- Learn to Quilt from Start to Finish
Have you been wanting to learn to quilt or curious about how to finish a quilt? We'll lead you from start to finish in this 4-week series. Students will follow a pattern called the "Economy Block." It is great for using up scraps, learning fussy cutting, and goes together quickly! Use a limited palette for a unified look or use scraps for a more colorful composition. The time frame we have selected for this class is designed to finish a baby-sized quilt (40"x40")
Please note that some "homework" will be required outside of class in order to stay on schedule. We do offer occasional Open Sew times if you do not have access to a machine at home.
Dates: Saturdays --- June 29th, July 6th*, 13th, and August 3rd.
*We understand this is a holiday weekend and you may be unavailable. Don't let that stop you for signing up. This date is flexible. If a majority of students can't make this date, we will offer an alternative.
Time: 10am- 1pm
