Beginning Quilting with Dudley Shugart
Begins Saturday, September 7, 2019 (4 Saturday morning sessions)
10:00 am – 1:00 pm
September 7, September 21, October 12 and October 26. 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 class will cover constructing blocks the teacher selects; the second class will be blocks each student chooses; the third class covers instruction on setting and sashing and the fourth and final class reviews quilting and binding.
The fabrics used in Dudley’s sample quilt shown here were purchased at Artistic Artifacts, while the small white/yellow quilt also pictured is Cozy by Lindsay Conner, a project from the book — your quilt can look completely different depending on the fabrics you choose!
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.
