Is the thought of machine quilting (or hand quilting) a large top overwhelming? Learn some ways to get around handling all that bulk in this "Quilt As You Go" class. Students will learn how to divide a quilt into smaller, more manageable sections and then use four different "Quilt As You Go" techniques for joining these sections together.

The class will focus on a small sample that mirrors the construction of larger quilts. Students may choose a focus fabric or small panels or orphan blocks surrounded by framing fabric.

Beginners and advanced quilters are welcome. Machine quilting skills are not necessary but are helpful. Hand quilters are also welcome. Some sewing will need to be completed outside of class.

SUPPLIES:

FABRIC: 100% cotton works best. BLOCKS: 4 rectangles at least 5" but no more than 12" (scraps, fabric panels, orphan blocks are all okay) (3 rectangles would work for a table runner or narrow wall hanging). SASHING: 1/8 yard of sashing for each rectangle (1/2 yard if using the same fabric for all 4 rectangles). BACKING: 1 yard or 4 scraps 18"x18" (or 4 fat quarters). BINDING: 1/4 yard. BATTING: 1/2 yard.

SEWING MACHINE: in good working order with a fresh needle. A walking foot is preferred but is not required.

NOTIONS: Rotary cutter, ruler and mat; Scissors; Safety pins; Seam Ripper; Hand sewing needle; Thread for quilting the top and to blend with the backing fabric for hand sewing.
