A Beginner’s Quilting Class
How to Make a Nine Patch Quilt
Do you wish that you could make special,
one of a kind gifts for family and friends?
not to mention they are usually pretty expensive!
BUT are you at a loss for where to start?
Then these lessons are for YOU!
This class is designed for beginners and is loaded with detailed,
step by step instructions and PICTURES.
Once you learn how to do a few basic things the sky is the limit. There are HUNDREDS of patterns that can be made once you learn how to do the basics.
I designed this course to make it as easy as possible to get started creating your own quilts. If there are instructions that are not clear to you I will try to explain it more clearly.
You can move along at your own pace,
choose your own fabric and colors.
The directions are given for the size of a throw. It’s important not to become overwhelmed with too big of a project in the beginning. As you improve with your sewing/quilting skills you can move on to bigger projects and create your own.
I hope to have a hand quilting class online soon. The good thing about machine quilting is that it allows you to have a finished project more quickly than if you were hand quilting it.
This class will teach you about:
- choosing fabric
- quilting rulers
- rotary cutter and mat
- piecing a top together
- squaring up
- adding binding
- making a label
- quilt care
This class is presented in PDF format as FIVE DOWNLOADABLE Lessons.
This is a bargain compared to what you would pay at a quilt shop for a lesson.
