If you have always admired quilts and wished you could make one or if you feel like a refresher would improve your quilting skills, this is the class for you! Over the course of six sessions, you will make a 9-block sampler quilt that will introduce you to rotary cutting, piecing straight and curved seams, and appliqué techniques that are basic to quilting. Meets for six 3 hour classes.

This quilt features working with the Painter's Palette solids from Paintbrush Studio. The solids can used alone or be combined with patterned prints or any fabrics of your choice. Blocks to be made in class include: Signature block, rail fence, pinwheels, flying geese, twin star, sawtooth star, drunkard's path, Dresden sunflower, and pineapple log cabin. Techniques will cover precision piecing, strip piecing, curved piecing, square in a square, piecing with templates, appliqué, paper/foundation piecing, and piecing with specialty rulers. Large cutting mats, irons and ironing boards are available for use in the classroom. Additional supplies will be discussed as options to add to your future quilting tools.
