Beginning Quilting
This is a four class course. We will go over techniques such as matching corners, curved piecing, inset seams, quarter & half square triangles. You will also learn information on batting, quilting tools (and toys) and binding. There will be some homework to do so that we can complete up to the basting on the quilt. I will then go over how to quilt the quilt and bind.

Costa Maya

Skill Level – Advanced Beginner

Choose a couple of large scale prints. Surround them with three blenders into a 15” courthouse step block, and you’re halfway there! Cut the block into 4 pieces and add some triangles. You now have all of the blocks for the center of the quilt, and all of your border blocks too.
