quilting series: sugar bear quilt

Come and join us this Winter to make the Sugar Bear Quilt by Southern Charm. This beginner-friendly quilt is a spin on the traditional bear claw block. Instead of using half square triangles as the "claws", this pattern uses half rectangle triangles, giving it a more modern look. This quilt is also a sampler, meaning every block is unique!

During this 7-week series, students will be making just the quilt top. Students will reinforce the techniques learned in Quilting 101, plus learn how to work with half-square rectangles, half-square triangles and snowballing.  The finished dimensions of the quilt top measure 70"x70".

This class is suitable for advanced beginner students, including those who have completed our Quilting 101 class and are looking advance their skill set. Students must have basic quilting experience and must be able to confidently operate a sewing machine independently. Please note, students will have homework to complete in between classes in order to finish the quilt top within the timeframe of the class. Additionally, there will be a (1) week break in between weeks 6 and 7.
