Intermediate Quilting 101

Wednesday, May 10 | 10am - 4pm

About this experience

DATE: Wednesday, May 10

TIME: 10am - 4pm

This class will take you beyond beginning quilting techniques and teach you half-square triangles, combination units and flying geese, three of the most popular units used in many quilt patterns. Tucker Trimmer tools will be utilized to make perfectly accurate units, and you'll be amazed how easy it is! 

Your project will be a Studio 180 table runner pattern called Switchback. The pattern gives you the option to make a small, medium or large table runner. Fabric requirements will be available on your supply list, and are listed below. Batiks are a beautiful choice for this table runner, and because they are so tightly woven and don't fray the piecing is quite accurate.
