Advanced Beginner-Intermediate Quilting

Barbara Aiken

Expanding upon the foundation of basic piecing and pattern reading techniques, students will be guided to select and complete their own quilt project, including wallhangings, table runner, bed quilts or garments. Emphasis will be on Traditional quilt patterns, blocks and variations. The instructor will suggest or assign a quilting block project that helps us all develop our skills. We will explore the importance of Color, Value, and Scale in selecting fabric. Techniques for effective colorwork, piecing, rotary cutting, and accuracy in cutting, piecing and pressing will be provided. Students will work at their own pace. Knowledge of basic, beginner quilting/sewing skills is preferred. (7 week course)
