This class is for beginners students. We will learn and review basic skills needed for piecing many different types of blocks. This is a skill building class in which we will work on fabric selection, use of rotary cutters, rulers, 1/4 seaming, pressing and block construction. Students will learn 4-6 blocks and may choose to make a baby quilt or a wall hanging.
Learning the basics is important in construction of precise blocks. The book we will be using is “You Can Quilt! Building Skills For Beginners”. This book has enough blocks to learn for both beginner and intermediate students. The book is available at Quilterʼs Haven.
