If you've been wanting to learn to sew patchwork quilts, this is the class for you! In this five-hour intensive, instructor Diana Rogers will take students on a tour of beginner patchwork -- the process of sewing small pieces of fabric together to make a larger composition.
In this class you'll learn:
- How to design and assemble a log cabin quilt block
- Beginner-level patchwork basics
- How to accurately cut fabric with a rotary cutter and cutting mat
- How to assemble your fabric pieces (you must have machine sewing experience)
- How to iron in quilting
- The specific cutting and assembly methods used in a simple quilt block
We will provide cutting mats, rotary cutters and rulers to share.
Each student will have access to their own sewing machine courtesy of BERNINA of America.
Students will work toward making a small quilt top-- either one jumbo quilt block, or several smaller blocks.Skill Requirements
