Quilting Skill Builder Series I – VIRTUAL

Following up from the Basic Quilt Class, this series of 4 virtual sessions will teach a new next-level skill each week. Where The Basic Quilt taught the building blocks of quilting, this series will focus on a new technique each week, via a traditional quilt block using those techniques. Through these blocks, we’ll build the skills to go off and tackle projects on our own! (This class will produce four quilt blocks to use as you see fit, but not a finished project.)

Class Schedule:
Week 1 – Strip Piecing / Rail Fence Block
Week 2 – Foundation Piecing / Pineapple Block
Week 3 – Freezer Paper Appliqué / Orange Peel Block
Week 4 – Piecing Curves / Drunkard’s Path Block

  • Standard machine sewing supplies

Notes: For some weeks, templates will be emailed prior to class each week and will need to be printed. At the end of each week, Julie will run through the supplies needed for the following week and will answer any questions!
