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


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!)

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.
