Beyond Basic Quilting and Piecing
Dates: Wednesday, 5:00-7:00pm, 10 Weeks Tuition: $70 Instructor: Barbara Aiken

Quilting and quilt making have acquired new dimensions from functional bed quilts to the improvisational art quilt. This class will offer projects and guidance in exploring more depth and information using traditional and/or contemporary techniques. Expanding upon the foundation of basic quilting and piecing techniques, students will be guided to select and complete their own project, including wallhangings, table runners, bed quilts, or pieced garments. The principles of color, value, scale, balance and contrast will be emphasized. New quilting/piecing and surface design techniques will be modeled periodically. Students will work at their own pace. (Knowledge of basic quilting/sewing skills is preferred.)
