Get started quilting! This class is a great introduction to cutting and piecing your first quilt top.  We will be teaching a very basic quilting block called the 'trip around the world’.  Students will be talked through the construction of the block, and will be able to cut and sew a couple up.  Guidance will be given to then replicate this block at home to create a quilt top of approximately 48" square.


Students are welcome to either bring their own machines (bring your manual too!) or use the Backstitch machines for free. We will be teaching using a 1/4 inch foot which the Backstitch machines are equiped with.


Materials List:
Quilting cotton: 6 half metres of different quilting cottons - plain or printed.
Thread suitable for piecing. We recommend Aurifil 50wt


If you would like to buy these items from the shop we are happy to help you choose although you may want to pop in before the day of the class as choosing fabric can take some time!!


Please be aware that we need two students enrolled on the class otherwise it is subject to cancellation.  By purchasing this class you are agreeing to our class policy.
