In this fun and educational class you will learn about fabrics, colors, choosing fabrics that work together. Choosing Patterns and what fabrics you might like with them. Selecting and using quilting tools like rotary cutters, rulers, cutting mats and more. What are notions and what are they for? Let's not forget the all important vocabulary, like...1/4" seam, scant 1/4" seam, press vs. iron, jelly rolls, charm packs, squares, 1/2 squares, 9 patch,Flying geese, churn dash, dresdan plate and so many more.
After you have learned what these things are you will make a simple lap quilt that you have chosen everything for and made yourself!
Commit to being at all 4 classes. If you must miss one you can make it up in the class that is on the different day, but same week as the one you are signed up for. So if you are in the Thursday class and can't make it you will make arrangements to come to the Saturday class. If you are in Saturdays class make arrangements to come in on Thursday. You will either need to bring a machine or we can loan you 1 temporarily.
