Quilting I - For the Novice



This novice class starts from the basics -- preparing, measuring and rotary cutting fabric perfecting the elusive 1/4" seam and pressing . It will then lead you through the process of making a sampler quilt that can be as funky or traditional as you like. You'll make a variety of traditional pieced blocks, along with some applique, and they'll all be assembled into a quilt top that you'll be proud to display as your first ever quilt. But not your last! Level: Novice  This class requires weekly homework.
