CQ Complete Course of Quilting
- May 28, 2024 06:00 pm

This quilting course teaches everything you need to know to start making your own quilts. This course covers the basics: getting to know your sewing machine, rotary cutting, fabric selection, and a variety of techniques for machine-piecing quilt blocks. You make a sampler quilt and learn to sandwich, quilt, and bind your masterpiece. This is the perfect opportunity to explore the quilter?s art, which is both ancient and modern!

Cost: $ 300.00
Quilting with rulers is a wonderful way to add curved designs to your quilting repertoire. Bored with your walking foot and intimidated by full-on free motion quilting? Ruler work is an ideal compromise to create precise yet interesting stitching on your quilts. In this 5-week class, you will make a 9-block sampler of ruler work designs. The class will cover setting up your machine for ruler work, testing tension, and getting started. Each week you'll make one or two blocks with practice fabric during class; between each class you will reproduce the blocks with your sampler fabric. At the end, you?ll learn a quilt-as-you-go method for joining the blocks together.
