Sampler Quilt Top



In this class we will stress the importance of good basic sewing techniques, while introducing traditional piecing techniques. You will make lots of half square triangles, flying geese, snowballs, and other basic building blocks of traditional quilting. The first class session will explain how to plan your quilt and after that you will make one block per session. When class is finished, you will have a unique sampler quilt top ready to quilt and bind at home. Please bring any fabric you want to use in your quilt to the first class. During the first class we will help you to create a plan for your quilt top, and explain yardage requirements. To help you anticipate costs, you will need small amounts of colored fabrics for each square, plus approximately 3 yards of "framing" fabric and 2 1/4 yards of low-volume background fabrics to complete your quilt top. This class will make a beginner quilter into an intermediate quilter (for those who have taken Intro to Quilting and My First Quilt and asked "what's the next step"? This class is it!)
