Beginning Quilting (Wednesday Evenings) with Dudley Shugart
Begins Wednesday, January 9, 2019 (6 sessions)
6:00 – 8:00 pm
January 9, January 16, January 23, January 30; February 6 and February 13. Learn the entire process of making a quilt, from cutting out your fabric to binding. This class will use FreeSpirit Block Party: 40 Quilt Blocks, 5 Samplers, 20 Modern Designers
(purchase required by each student) as a text. The first two classes will be constructing blocks the teacher selects (one each class). The second two classes will be blocks the student chooses. Class 5 will be instruction on setting and sashing
and the final class on quilting and binding. The fabrics used in Dudley’s sample quilt shown here are from the Wonder
fabric line designed by Carrie Bloomston. (The small white/yellow quilt also pictured is Cozy by Lindsay Conner, a project from the book: your quilt may look completely different.) In addition to the Free Spirit Block Party book, each student should bring: 5 to 7 coordinating fat quarters (students may probably want to add more colors as class progresses), an 8 inch ruler, a 24 inch ruler, rotary cutter, cutting mat, sewing machine in good working order that you are comfortable using, and basic sewing notions. Note:
students are expected to have basic sewing skills and knowledge of their sewing machine: this is not
an introduction to sewing or a beginning sewing class. Email us
if you have questions about this class.
