OCTOBER

 

Quilt As-You-Go

Tuesdays, October 4 & 18                                               Time:  12:00 – 4:00

In this class, you will learn to make projects without putting the entire thing through your sewing machine to quilt it.  This class meets every other Tuesday afternoon; you will make a project of your selection (or Terry will make suggestions for projects if wanted).  Each block will be pieced, then sandwiched with batting and quilted. It is fun to quilt and practice when it is only on a single block! Then you will use a sashing technique to join the blocks.  You can use this technique with any quilt block, traditional to modern. This class is beginner friendly. Come join the fun!
