Number in Class: 6
Entry Level: Improving Beginner. You will need to be fairly confident using a sewing machine and have a couple of projects under your belt. Some patchwork/ quilting experience is helpful but not required.

The Ohio Star is a classic, nine-patch quilt block made with five plain squares and four quarter-square triangle units. Students will be talked through the construction of the block, and will be able to cut and sew one up during the class. Guidance will be given to then replicate this block at home to create a quilt top of approximately 48" square.

In this class we will use a rotary cutter and ruler, along with the sewing machine, to create half square triangles. We will then use these half square triangles to make quarter square triangles, and move on to creating the block.

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 equipped with.

Materials List:
Quilting cotton: 4 fat quarters of different quilting cottons - plain or printed. Between two and four different fabrics is recommended. Please see our Quilt Fabric section.
Thread suitable for piecing. We recommend Aurifil 50wt
