Beginner Quilting: Lap Quilt


FINE ARTS, CRAFTS, FIBER, WOOD, & PHOTOGRAPHY -
Winter/Spring 2024

Have you always been interested in learning how to make a quilt? Here's your chance! This "Stashbuster Quilt" uses a fast and simple pattern for beginner and first-time quilters. It uses fat quarters and is rotary cut. Don't know what that means? No worries-you'll be guided through the whole process: from fabric choice to finishing your quilt. Your end result will be a lap size quilt ready for cold weather snuggles.

Participants will need to purchase the following supplies before the first class:

  • 9 Fat Quarters (Chose 9 fat quarters from three different analogous colors and three different saturations. Use a good variety of patterns. Do not use any directional fabrics, as some of the blocks will be turned upside-down.)
  • 3 1/4 yards fabric for backing 
  • 5 x 2.5 WOF strips for binding (1/2 yard, can be same fabric as backing)
  • Spool of thread (any light color like beige, cream, grey, etc.)
  • Bag of batting (twin size)

If you have any questions about this class or the supplies needed, please contact Access and we will put you in touch with Christine. Information on area fabric stores can be found here.

This is a beginner sewing and quilting class for students aged 13 and older.

This class will take place inside CVU.
