Class: Beginner Quiltmaking by Hand

10 Sessions starting Monday, September 26th 2012
Time6:30pm - 8:30pm
InstructorJeannie Jenkins

Carry on this traditional method of quilting by learning how to piece, appliqué and quilt by hand in 10 sessions. You will work with squares and triangles and learn to make your own templates and appliqué them. You'll make blocks with a variety of skill levels starting simple with the 16 patch and moving on to stars, tumbling blocks and even a dresden plate! You will learn to piece your top, sash and border it, baste the quilt sandwich, hand quilt and bind it. Gaining these skills will let you create a quilt that will be cherished for years to come and get you started on an enriching quilting journey.

Jeannie always brings loads of samples to the classes.
They're great inspiration and give the class a chance to discuss ideas and techniques.
