Beginner Quilting - $140 class fee - 5 classes - starts Fridays 10-12:30 pm - Aug 9, 16, 23, 30, Sep 6

Beginner Piecing Class
This class is for the newbie quilter. We will be making 5 traditional blocks: Churn Dash, Split rail,
Friendship, 9-Patch and a machine applique heart. The final quilt measures just over 60 inches square
- perfect to snuggle with!
Supplies are listed below to make your piecing more accurate.
Choosing fabrics: Find a multi-colored print that you really like. Then find three coordinating fabrics. You can use solids or fabrics that read as solids (they look solid from a distance). One of the three fabrics should be less busy and quite a bit lighter than the other two.
You need to know how to use your sewing machine.

There is homework to complete before the first meeting and quite a bit more to complete between the

Don’t hesitate to text, call, or email me if you have any questions!
