Quilting 101 Covers the Basics (SUPPLY LIST below)
Are you new to quilting? Have you done some quilting but feel like you missed something along the way? Have you been quilting awhile and think you could use a tune-up on your cutting skills or your piecing technique? Quilting 101 may be the class for you!
Taught by Sharon Crozier and Vicki Kauth, Quilting 101 is the guild’s beginning beginner class. It focuses on basic construction techniques involving squares and rectangles. The project is a table runner incorporating rail fence, log cabin and nine-patch blocks along with sashing and borders with cornerstones.
Topics covered include fabric and tools, color and contrast, rotary cutting, 1/4” seams, piecing techniques, setting the blocks together, sashing, borders, layering the quilt sandwich, quilting, binding, labels and hanging sleeves. Be warned: there WILL be homework!
The four-session class meets from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays (bring a lunch!) beginning Jan. 14, 2017. The first session will be at Remember Me Quilt Shop, 307 S. Main St. in Mountain Home, and it will include a field trip to the other two local quilt shops. The remaining sessions will meet at Vicki’s house. Cost for the class is $25.
You can sign up for the class at the December guild meetings or by contacting Vicki at firstname.lastname@example.org or (870) 421-5369. Your class slot will be reserved when your payment is received.
