Basic Quilting 1F22
Learn basic quilting techniques and then expand into areas where the quilt becomes art, exploring what makes good design, shape and color composition, and finally touching on surface elements and dimensionality. You'll use scraps of favorite fabrics to design and sew a quilt. By the final class, you'll be equipped with new ideas, techniques and inspiration to continue your own work.
All experience-levels; new and returning students welcome. Limit 6 students.
