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 'disappearing nine patch'. 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 54" square.
