235 – Quilt Making Basics
Price: $175 for 15 hours (5 sessions)
Instructor: Rebecca Prange
Whether your interest is in conventional or contemporary quilt stylings this is the place to learn the basics of quilt making from start to finish. We'll begin with rotary cutting and sewing an accurate 1/4" seam, then move on to piecing, layering, quilting and binding. Leave class with functional knowledge of the entire process of this enduring art form. Class makes one crib sized quilt! When you purchase your fabric and supplies from us, we’ll throw in the book of quilt patterns used in this class for free!
All fabrics, batting and supplies are available at Sew L.A., and we carry 1/4" feet and walking feet for all Janome machines!
