Class Description:
This beginner sampler quilt course has been designed especially for those who can use a sewing machine but have limited or no experience of patchwork and quilting and want to learn more. We will guide you and take you through the basics of patchwork and quilting by making this Beginners Sampler Quilt.
 
During this patchwork and quilting course, we will cover all the basic skills you will need, including using a rotary cutter and mat, how to cut fabrics and sew your blocks together (known as piecing) with accuracy using a sewing machine, how to quilt all three layers (the front, batting and back) together using a method called ‘quilt as you go’. This method will allow you to work with smaller, more manageable pieces, perfect for home sewing machines. Then we’ll show you how to neaten and bind the edges of your finished quilt.
 
During each class we will teach you different skills and techniques. You will need to use these to work on your quilt at home in between sessions at the shop to stay on top of your sampler quilt.
 
Completing this course will give you the skills and confidence you need to tackle more complicated projects going forward. Our Beginner’s Sampler Quilt will measure approx. 51" x 51" square when finished.
