Sunday October 17 & Sunday October 24, 2021 - 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. (two day class, 10 hours total)
Have you always wanted to learn how to make your own quilt from start to finish? Have you spent the last two years sewing masks and you're ready for more? Here's where you start! Join Becky for this beginner quilting intensive and by the end you'll have your own handmade quilt and all the skills needed to start your own quilting journey! Together we'll plan, cut, and piece this modern Swiss Cross quilt in fabric of your choosing (in Baby or Throw size). You'll learn how to cut fabric for quilting and sew an accurate 1/4" seam, chain piece, match corners and piece a quilt top. In the second class, we will assemble our quilts, baste, quilt and bind them. You'll get patient, expert guidance and helpful tips every step of the way. Warning: quilting is highly addictive!
Cost: $125, includes quilt pattern, does not include supplies
