TRICKS OF THE TRADE CLASS DESCRIPTION - A TWO DAY CLASS FOR ALL SKILL LEVELS
This class was developed for those who want to learn new skills or brush up on the essentials. Basic principles of cutting and piecing are great for the beginner to learn and for more experienced quilters to review, perhaps picking up some new or alternative methods for that finer “more professional” look. Thorough notes are provided.
This class will cover maintaining an accurate ¼ inch seam, curved piecing, set in seams and accurate half-square and quarter square triangles. Rotary cutting techniques using angles on Quilter’s Rulers including creating a La Moyne Star.
Border techniques including bias, straight and mitered corners will be covered. Demonstrations of machine and hand quilting will also be given. TOT covers everything a student needs to make a quilt from start to finish.
Students may either use the final part of the class to border blocks made in class or on an unfinished quilt. (If bordering an existing quilt, bring appropriate fabrics.
