Beginning Quilting Class



In this class you will learn EVERYTHING you need to know to complete a quilt. We will discuss fabric
selection, proper cutting technique, thread, needles, and batting. We will complete a throw or wall
sized quilt, quilt and bind it – everything from the first steps to the last. This class is suitable for anyone
with just basic sewing skills. Minimum age is 14 
4 classes – 3 hours each


Supplies

Note that I will go over lots of choices for tools in the
first class so you may want to wait to purchase any of these until
after the first class!

  •  We will go over fabric supplies in class and discuss color and value
  • Sewing machine in good working order with a ¼” piecing foot
  •  Basic sewing supplies including scissors, seam ripper, pins and pin cushion, Stiletto (my favorite stiletto is from Clover)
  • 45mm or 60mm rotary cutter (we’ll talk about why the 60mm in class!) 18x24 cutting matt
  • 6.5”x24.5” rotary cutting ruler (my favorite is Creative Grids)
  •  4.5”x12.5” rotary cutting ruler (On these rulers – the width is important but the ½ inch extra on the length isn’t)
  •  Neutral thread
  •  Mary Ellen’s Best Press
  •  Paper and pencil to take notes (or write in your book!)
  •  Marking tool (I use Frixon pens)
  •  Book (required!) Make Your First Quilt by Alex Anderson
  •  Twin size batting – Don’t buy this yet – we’re going to talk about batting!
  •  Spray Baste (any brand is fine – get what Ace carries!)


Fabric
Again, we’re going to go over fabric selection in the first class but if you have something you really want
to use, bring it. You’ll need 5 fabrics: 1 dark, 1 light and 3 medium.
