CQ Complete Course of Quilting

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!

Finished size of sampler quilt:  40 in. x 50.5 in.

Know before you sign up: The course includes 10 group classes, one private session with the instructor, and the textbook.The instruction is very much hands-on. You must have a sewing machine in good working order that you can bring to class each week. If your machine has not been serviced in the past year, please have it cleaned and oiled. Capital Quilts' machine technicians can clean and oil most brands of sewing machines. Allow two to three weeks for servicing.

This session of the Complete Course meets in-person in the classroom at Capital Quilts. If you would prefer to take the class on Zoom, click here.

Please download and read the supply list before the first class.


Class Policies:

Please do not bring visitors to class.

Be sure to check your supply list before class.  Bring all supplies with you.

If you must cancel the class, your fee can be refunded ONLY if you have notified us at least seven days before the class. The refund will be a store credit.   If someone on the waiting list can fill your place, you will receive store credit for the fee, even if you have not notified us by the deadline.

Capital Quilts reserves the right to cancel a class due to insufficient participation.  We require at least two people in a daytime class and three in an evening class.  If we cancel the class for this reason, you will receive a full refund of the class fee.  (You can avoid this situation by getting a friend to sign up with you!)

If Capital Quilts cancels the class for any reason, including inclement weather, you will receive an email advising you of this situation.  We also post store closings on our website,, and on Facebook.  If the class is rescheduled, you will be invited to come to the new class before the class is opened to public registration.  In the event you cannot take the rescheduled class, you will receive a full refund of the class fee.

Classroom sewing machines are available for rental during a class.  There is a $10 fee per class session.  Quantities are limited, so please ask to reserve a machine as soon as possible.  Plan to come to the shop early on the day of class so that we can show you how to thread and operate the machine.
