I will supply stencils to use in class for free motion quilting and some fabric for free motion applique.

Learn to Finish the Quilt- If you have an unfinished quilt top from one of our quilt classes, you can learn to quilt and bind the quilt in this class. This would be a substitute for the free motion project. Bring enough pre-quilted single faced fabric to cover the back of your quilt and 5/8 yd for binding for a lap size quilt top.

You will send 2 hours for either class. Let me know what you would like to accomplish with your class time. Here is the link to enroll.

Classes can be scheduled any free day from 1:30 to 4:30pm.

Try the Quick Trip Quilt Class-

This class is a great way to start quilting. Use either your serger or your sewing machine to make this fun, fast and easy quilt. You will need to purchase your fabrics and book before class.  Homework will be necessary to complete the quilt top.
The fabrics required are: neutral polyester all sew thread like Gutermann or Coats and Clark all purpose thread. 1/4 yd of 6 solids or prints that coordinate from light to medium to dark for the quilt top. The borders can be one or more of the top prints and solids and require 1/4 yard for 1st border, 3/4 for 2nd border and 5/8 yard for binding. This will make a 42″ X 52″ quilt. (NO PLAIDS).

Try the Log Cabin Quilt-

This class is a great way to start quilting. Use either your serger or your sewing machine to make this fun, fast and easy quilt. You will need to purchase your fabrics, thread (all purpose polyester sewing thread) and book before class. The quilt will measure 54″ X 68″ and is known as a Lap Quilt or Baby Quilt. The quilt traditionally has a light side which can be 3 different fabric prints and 3 dark prints. These light and dark prints are attached to a bright center block. To help you pick fabrics pick a theme like “baby” or “team” or a color that will blend into your home.

Bring the following to the first class: For the Center square 1/8 yd, for the light light 1/3 yd, 2nd light 1/2 yd, 3rd light 2/3yd, for the 1st dark 3/8 yd, 2nd dark 5/8 yd, and 3rd dark 2/3 yd. Borders can be chosen from the light and dark prints. Add 5/8yd for the first border, 1 yard for the second border and 2/3 yard for the binding. Ask the fabric store to cut each piece separately and mark them as 1st light, 2nd, 3rd, border etc.. (NO PLAIDS) We will cut the strips and borders in class. You can make any size but it is strongly suggested you start small so you can finish during the session. Homework will be needed to complete the quilt top. See the class link for more information.
