quilting series: quilting 101 - learn to quilt!

In this 8-week course, students will learn the art of quilting.  Students will make a quilt measuring approximately 48" x 48" using Half-Square Triangles, a basic beginner-friendly sewing block.  (This quilt size is perfect for baby gifts!)  We'll systematically work through the proper techniques of the quilting process, from cutting to piecing to assembling, basting, quilting, and binding a quilt.  Students will not only receive instruction on these steps but will have sufficient time during class to work on and master these skills under the guidance of the instructor. 

Prior to the start of the course, students will receive an email with material requirements.  Fabrics for the quilt top must be purchased before (and brought to) the first class. 

Note:  This course is designed with enough work time that should be able to finish the quilt during class time, but a finished product is not guaranteed and students may have to complete homework to finish the quilt within the course timeframes.
