Saturday Feb 29, 10 am - 3 pm and Saturday March 7, 10 am - 3 pm (two day class)
Have you always wanted to learn how to make your own quilt from start to finish? 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 plus sign quilt in fabric of your choosing. You'll learn 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 expert guidance and helpful tips every step of the way. Warning: quilting is highly addictive!
