It was only a matter of time. For those of you who have stopped in or talked to me about classes, you know it’s been on my to-do list for a while now to offer a quilt class in the Home Made studio. Well, wait no more! And, yes, I enjoyed great satisfaction from placing a check in the box next to “Quilt class” in my little notebook. . .
Last year, I offered a class making Cloud9 Fabrics’ 5×5 Quilt — a terrific project that we created in one afternoon. Albeit a very long afternoon, but the quilts were beautiful and, perhaps more importantly, finished in a day! But, a quilt class in held in just one afternoon has it’s limitations. Like time.
This summer I’m offering a beginner quilt class making Atkinson Designs’ Slideshow Quilt. This class is comprised of three sessions, each focusing on skills essential to quilting — rotary cutting, piecing, and borders/binding. After each class, you’ll have the know-how and two weeks time to work on your project independently. At your own pace. If you’re a confident beginner, this class is for YOU!
“Every piece doesn’t need to be perfectly aligned–a few mismatched corners and wobbly seams are reassuring evidence that we are human. This doesn’t mean you should abandon good craftsmanship altogether, but accept where you are now, skillwise, and let the small stuff slide.”
— Denyse Schmidt in her latest book, Modern Quilts Traditional Inspiration
If you’re psyched about this class, here’s what you need to do:
1. Read the full class description here.
2. Call 609.536.2940 or stop in to register so you can save your spot! As with most of our sewing classes, space is limited to 4 people per class. Of course, if this first class fills up I’ll be adding a second section on Thursday evenings.
3. Stop in to pick your fabrics and let the fun begin!
