Quilt 101: Patchwork Quilting



The basic patchwork quilt class is perfect for the first time quilt maker or as a refresher if it has been a minute since your last quilt.  In three lessons you will learn step by step how to piece, quilt, and bind your own unique quilt, finishing at approximately 36" x 42".

Lesson One: Making the Quilt Top.  We will cover fabric selection, how to use a rotary cutter and ruler, cutting, layout, piecing, stitching ¼” seam allowances, pressing and general construction of the quilt top.

Lesson Two: Quilting. We will learn how to make a quilt "sandwich," consisting of the quilt top, batting, and backing, in addition to how to baste and begin the quilting process.

Lesson Three: The Big Finish! It's time to trim the quilt and finish it off by making and attaching the binding!
