Your First Quilt, a Pink Castle Fabrics class

Your First Quilt

 Learn the basics of quilting while you make an beautiful baby or lap quilt with our program coordinator, Rossie.  There are no prerequisites for this class. All you need is a positive attitude and an eagerness to learn.

This class will cover fabric selection, cutting, piecing, pressing, making a quilt sandwich, basting, machine quilting, and double fold binding.  For the first class you will need your sewing machine, the sewing machine's manual, and thread. Later classes will require additional materials, this will be discussed in class.

The Flyers Quilt
The Flyers quilt is the project.  Although the pattern is for a lap or baby sized quilt, the design is customizable... you can start a big quilt or just make a mini quilt! You will be learning how to choose fabrics for a quilt, as well as two ways to cut and piece half square triangles. You will also learn how to use the Accuquilt Go to cut pieces, as well as using a rotary cutter.
