Quilt As You Go



Do you want to quilt your own quilts but you know it can be difficult to get the whole quilt under your machine - that's why you do Quilt As You Go!  In the class you will come to class with block already made.  We will learn to attach sashing's in such a way that you will be able to quilt one block at a time.  Free Motion quilting experience is very helpful.  This is a great class to take if you have taken Nancy's Quilted Tiles class, but any block will do.

Fabrics

2-4 finished quilt blocks
Sashing fabric of your choice to go with your blocks.  For a 4 block quilt you will need 1/2 yard.  If you have more blocks figure a 1/2 yard for every 4 blocks.
Corner stone fabric to coordinate with your blocks and sashing - 1/2 yard
Backing fabric - a small busy print that is NOT directional works best.  For ever 4 block you will need 1 yard of fabric.
Batting - cotton blend batting works best - a crib size works for every 4 blocks, for a queen size quilt you would need 2 queen battings.
Border fabric will not be needed until the second class.
