This class will be upstairs!
Has machine quilting made hand quilting obsolete? Not at all! It remains a viable option to finish your quilts, whether done over your entire quilt or to enhance certain areas. This class will cover how to hand quilt using a lap hoop (short stitch and big stitch), how to choose a quilting design to compliment your quilt top, and how to mark your quilt.
Supply list: ● Quilting hoop (14” round or 12 x 20” oval) ● Hand quilting thread ● Needles (“betweens” - size 9 or 10) ● Marking tools: mechanical pencil or chalk pencils (light color for dark fabrics, and vice versa) ● Optional big stitch supplies: sashiko needle and mid-weight (no 8) perle cotton ● Thimble - One that fits comfortably on the middle finger of your dominant hand. ● A practice quilt: 2 fat quarters of fabric with a piece of low-loft batting sandwiched between; basted or safety-pinned together ● The basics: pins, seam ripper, scissors ● Optional: bring a quilt top that you would like to hand quilt, so that we can discuss quilting options to compliment the piecing. ● Questions? firstname.lastname@example.org or 720-204-8679
