This is a great pattern for beginners, but you will already need to know how to use a sewing machine before you take this class. You can take any of our Learn To Sew classes to learn how to use a machine.
You will leave class with a quilt top (or nearly finished one!) and the confidence to take on more complicated patterns and techniques.
This class covers how to make the quilt top. If you would like help finishing the quilt, we recommend you follow up this class with Learn To Quilt II. In that class, Michelle will cover how to complete your quilt with instruction in quilting and binding the finished top. Another option is to have your quilt longarm quilted by Hello Stitch!
