Building Blocks Mini Quilt: Beginning Quilting

Class is August 20th AND 27th from 10am to 12 noon
Last day to sign up is August 16th



What You Will Learn:

The Building Blocks mini quilt is a perfect project to learn the basics of quilting using just 4 fat quarters to make the quilt top.  For social distancing purposes, this class will be limited in size and will be 2 shorter classes with homework.  You will learn how to cut accurately with a rotary cutter, mat and quilting rulers.  You will also learn how to sew an accurate ¼ inch seam, pressing techniques and notions, basic machine quilting, binding techniques, and quilting terminology

What you need to bring (Supply List):

  • sewing machine- clean and in good working order.  You MUST know how to use your machine.
  • New universal 80, top stitching 80, or quilting 80 machine needles
  • Thread- cotton or polyester for construction, and a thread for quilting (you can use the same thread for both if desired, but I love the variegated Cotona Cotton)
  • Extra bobbins
  • ¼ inch foot- not necessarily required, but a ¼ inch foot or ¼ inch foot with an edge guide makes for a more accurate seam. You can also use a walking foot if you have one.
  • Temporary quilt basting spray adhesive such as KK200 or 505 spray
  • 4 different FAT quarters (18 X 22 inches), starched and pressed (Best Press is my preferred ‘starch’)
  • ¼ yard (NOT a fat quarter) fabric for binding (pressed and starched)
  • 40 X 40 inch fabric for backing (pressed and starched) 
  • Sharp small scissors for trimming threads
  • Open toed, edge joining foot, oval holed stitch in the ditch foot, or quilt binding foot- optional but makes sewing down the binding so much easier!
  • Clips and/or sharp long pins
  • Seam gauge
  • We will supply the rotary cutters, rulers, mats, binding ruler, and batting 
  • *You do not need to wash your fabric.
