Quilt As You Go

 QAYG creates blocks that can be quilted prior to assembly allowing the quilter to create a custom quilt design on each individual block.  This also makes a perfect opportunity to turn your one sided quilt into a two sided quilt easily.  Although the most popular way of assembly is to have the joining seams on the quilt top, we show you how to easily calculate your blocks to have the joining seams on the back of the quilt.  A must learn for all quilters.

Bargello Quilt

 By definition, a bargello quilt is one made of strips of fabric sewn together to create the appearance of movement. These patterns look complicated, but they're actually a fine fit for beginning quilters. If you can sew a straight seam, you can do this!

Perfect Mitered Corners

I love the look of mitered corners on my quilt borders, and although they may look complex, the fact is that they are very easy once you learn this technique. We will be creating a set of 4 blocks in class giving you an opportunity to practice, the blocks can then be easily pieced together to make a small quilt project which will also give you a new block design to use in your quilting future!
