Quick Trip Quilt Class – Beginner level!
2 classes – 3 hour sessions- “One on One”! 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: 1/4 yd of 6 solids or prints that coordinate from light to medium to dark for the baby size 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 or strips or diagonals.)(Purchase the backing and batting after the 1st class) Single or double faced pre-quilted fabric is suggested for batting and backing. You will need 3 1/4 yards of the single or double faced backing. Can be a solid or a print.
The Quick Trip “Quilt in a Day” book is strongly suggested and can be purchased on line at Amazon or Quilt in a Day. $18.95.
Time allowed to complete most of the quilt top for a baby size quilt. You can schedule more time, if needed, for larger quilts and for learning to quilt the top and bind the quilt.
Bring your machine or serger, I suggest white or off white thread (neutral polyester all sew thread like Gutermann or Coats and Clark all purpose thread) , scissors for trimming and cutting fabric, pins, Quick trip book, ¼” foot and walking foot. I will provide an iron. See you there. I can supply a machine or serger if you reserve one in advance, but you will need to supply the thread for the machine or serger.
