Quilting 101: Easy-Peasy Piecing for the ABSOLUTE Beginner

ID : 87063   
« back to classes page
Want to start quilting but don’t know where to begin?  Then this class is for you.  I’ve successfully  taught over 100 students and I’ve had no crying.  You’ll learn fabric selection, rotary cutting, chain piecing, straight line quilting and even binding.  You’ll never get a ticket from the Quilt Police when you learn how to find and use a perfect ¼” seam.   You’ll also learn all kinds of tips and tricks while creating your first quilt top.  Time is set aside to sew in each class—however, to finish the quilt top you will need to sew a few hours at home during the week.  The book contains the pattern and fabric requirements to complete your chosen project.  A detailed shopping list in the book includes all the materials you will need to finish the quilt top including basic quilting supplies and fabrics.  You must have a sewing machine in good working order and know how to use it.  The book is: Start Quilting with Alex Anderson, 3rd Edition.  Available from The Quilt Works or Amazon.  Sample and supply list are available at The Quilt Works.  You can contact me : with questions and to request a copy of the supply list.  Put Quilting 101 in the subject line.
