Beginner Quiltmaking Class

In August, I'm starting a continuing series of Beginner Quiltmaking classes through the Cotton Patch Quilt Guild in Athens, Georgia which will run until folks are sick of me, or until I'm worn out. The classes will meet twice a month. Before the start of each series we'll have a preliminary meeting to check the working order of student sewing machines, learn good machine maintenance habits, practice the 1/4" seam, and talk about fabric selection and tools. I'll also pass out the Supply List and fabric requirements. The preliminary meetings are free, and there's a small fee per class.

Here's my class sample...

It's a "row" quilt with half-square triangles, 4-patch blocks, and stars; just right for learning popular piecing methods.

If you live near Athens, GA and would like to learn how to make quilts, leave a comment on this post or go to my website here for contact information.
