This class is perfect for the quilter who has done a few beginner level quilts on their own, and is ready to take it to the next level. It’s also ideal for those who have been sewing for a while and just want to come to a class and connect with other wonderful quilters, and leave with something new that’s beautifully made. 

This pattern is a little more complicated than standard square piecing, but also provides a handful of techniques which are used in many quilting patterns.

Cutting and organizing are important and will help to ensure efficiency when piecing. In this class, we’ll talk about efficient methods for cutting, piecing (chain piecing), and finding consistency is more difficult than quilting stars and blocks. We’ll learn techniques for HSTs, Flying Geese, square in square, and sashing.

If you are unable to complete homework outside of class, between weeks, you’ll still be able to complete 1-2 blocks in the given class time structure. If you are able to complete homework between classes, you will likely be able to complete the entire quilt top.

*Skill Level:  Advanced Beginner - You have a good handle on the basics and are ready to dip your toe into more challenging waters. You’re still fairly new to sewing from patterns and could use help with how to manipulate the pattern to get a better fit. You want to add some new skills to your repertoire (invisible zippers, setting-in sleeves, sewing with a serger, etc.). Classes generally require homework.
