Quilt Piecing 101

This Class Series is designed to give you all of the basics of piecing a quilt top. We will cover fabric selection, thread, accurate cutting and piecing, assembling your blocks, adding borders and pressing for success!
At the end of the Class you will have a quilt top that can be finished into a throw or wall hanging.
Class will run from 5:30 - 8:30PM on three Wednesday evenings.
*Quilting and binding your project are not included in this class.

In order to keep the enrollment cost of this class as low as possible, we require each student to purchase a fabric kit and book for the class from The Fabric Chic.  The kit (with book included) will be available for purchase by the beginning of January.  Cost for the kit with book is $74.99.

Basic sewing knowledge is required and there will be some sewing homework between the classes.  You must know how to use your sewing machine.  This is not a beginner sewing class, but a beginner quilt piecing class.
