Beginning Quilting @ Stitch N Quilt – Thursday, 2/19 from 10:00 a.m. – 2 p.m.
We will be making Popsicle Sticks from Atkinson Designs in the smallest size. You will need (46) 2-1/2″ strips, or a jelly roll plus 4 light fat quarters to add enough variety to make this lap size quilt.
Students who were in the Perfect 5 Ruler technique classe asked me to teach a beginning quilting class. They chose this pattern. Most participants have chosen to use batiks; however, I have a Tula Pink jelly roll plus some FQs from the stash that I will be using to make my version.
The first session will cover proper rotary cutting techniques and achieving a perfect 1/4″ seam on your machine. As we move through the quilt-making process, we will also cover color placement, squaring up blocks, creative fixes for boo-boos, preparing the quilt top for quilting, basting the quilt sandwich, walking foot quilting and back-to-front binding by machine.
Future classes will be scheduled on Saturdays and the schedule will be set at our first class.
Class fee: $25.00 per session – contact Stitch N Quilt to register.
Transform a T-shirt! – Turn your cherished t-shirt into a pillow! – Begins March 8, 2021
(in partnership with the Southeast Quilt & Textile Museum)
This asynchronous class will last two weeks with students able to complete segments and their own pace and have a live Zoom call with me on Thursday evenings to check-in and ask questions in real time. We will have a virtual show & tell at the end of class.
This is one of my most popular F2F kid’s sewing classes. This is the ideal project for ‘tweens and teens with some sewing experience wanting a virtual sewing class geared toward them. It is also a good choice for mommy/grandma & me, homeschool parents or any adult wanting to teach a youngster to sew.
Any working sewing machine that makes a straight stitch can handle this project.
If you do not have access to a rotary cutter, ruler and mat, notify the class registrar. We can modify the project for you with paper templates to use with scissors and pins.
Cost: $35.00 – contact the SE Quilt & Textile Museum to register.
