Quilting is a tradition that has come from using old clothes and flour sacks in the early pioneer days to the art form that is so popular today. This class takes you back to the tradition of quilting by teaching you how to choose fabrics, how much to buy, how to use the modern day rotary cutters and instead of piecing by hand, you piece with our modern day sewing machines. You will also learn the terminology that has remained the same and how to put together a "sampler" quilt using some of the traditional old world blocks that out ancestors made.
This is a 4 week class that will take you from beginning to the finish product with batting, backing, and binding. This class has a limited class size, so please sign up early
