Welcome to the world of quilt making! This class is the first module in a series of three classes designed to teach you how to make a quilt, from beginning (piecing) to end (binding).
Students in this class will learn how to use a rotary cutter, patchwork techniques (including achieving an accurate 1/4” seam allowance) and strip piecing. By the end of the class, you’ll have a small quilt top and be ready for the second module, Quilting 102: Introduction to Machine Quilting. The third module, which may be taken afterwards, is Quilting 103: Binding Your Quilt. These three modules must be taken in order, though they are offered individually, so as to make it easier for students to fit the classes into their schedules.
The successful student will have completed Sewing 101 or have equivalent skills and be very comfortable using a sewing machine. This should include threading, winding a bobbin and adjusting machine settings.
