Learn to Quilt - Chatham

This class is designed for the brand new quilter.  This course will teach you how to select fabrics, cut using a rotary cutter, sewing a quarter inch seam allowance, piecing, building a quilt sandwich and bindings. 

This course will use the Ultimate Beginner Quilt pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop. There are 9 different quilt blocks, each teaching a new skill.

In this course we will cut and assemble each of the quilt blocks, join the blocks together to create a quilt top, create a quilt sandwich with the top and backing and bind the finished quilt.
