Quilting Basics Part 2--Adding Geese



As we move on to the second of four classes we will add additional units to your repertoire and build your confidence in turning written block patterns into actual fabric quilt blocks. Teacher Liz Granberg-Jerome will provide informative handouts and block patterns in each class to use for reference as she guides you in hands-on instruction. You will make nine blocks by the end of the series, plus optional bonus blocks to create a sampler quilt of up to 12 different blocks. This series includes many tips, tricks, and plenty of time for Q&A. Great class for new quilters or as a refresher for those wishing to hone their skills. Classes will meet in the Lumberyard Arts Center classroom/studio from 10am to 3pm. Class fee: $35 per class


Quilting Basics Part 2: Sat., Nov 19, 10am to 3pm
Continued basic instructions as we add Flying Geese and Diamond in a Square units to create more complex blocks. Overview of rulers, notions, and lots of tips! Three block patterns will be given as part of the class that can be made into a table runner or saved over the series to become a sampler quilt. Optional bonus block patterns will also be available in each class.
