Beginning Quilting Learn how to quilt from start to finish! Using your own choice of fabrics (we'll help you!), make this small sampler quilt. Learn how to make a nine-patch, log cabin, half-square triangles, and flying geese; learn how to machine quilt with a walking foot and a freemotion foot, learn how to measure for borders, and how to bind your quilt. This project is small enough to finish.

In this class you'll make blocks such as School Girl's Puzzle, Hattie's trick, and Sister's choice!

Shredded Art Quilt with Chris Eichner Create a beautiful mosaic art quilt using tiny pieces of shredded fabric cut with a rotary blade and placed according to your photo; the simpler the scene the better.
