Do you want to learn how to properly make a quilt – from start to finish?
In this series, Helen will teach you the basics of quiltmaking…from choosing fabrics, to using the proper tools, to precision piecing and pressing, to stitch-in-the-ditch machine quilting, and more. Lots of tips and tricks will be shared. By the end of this 3-part series, you will have completed a small quilt – one to be proud of!
A kit with enough fabric to make a small quilt top. By the end of this 3-part series, students will have completed a crib- or throw-size quilt (approximately 40” x 52”).
This is a Beginner class, but the student should come with a functioning sewing machine and have some experience using it.
