The Basic Quilt


Learn all the steps to make a basic lap quilt from start to finish – from cutting, to piecing, to quilting and binding.  This is a great introductory quilting class and perfect for anyone comfortable on a sewing machine who wants to learn how to quilt and learn the fundamentals of patchwork design. (And if you would love to take the class but have to miss a night just let us know in advance as we should be able to work around it! Also, fyi – some outside of class work will be necessary for this class)
