3 Part Class I teach this class using the Eleanor Burns Log Cabin Book. It is a great reference book for this class. I teach you how to choose fabric, color wheel info, quilting terminology, notions, how to rotary cut, how to find that perfect 1/4" seam, how to apply borders and binding. We will be hand quilting in this class. Entire book of handouts for you to keep and refer to.
This is a perfect class for those who have always wanted to learn to quilt. You will be taken through every step to apply to a larger piece when finished with this class. Lots of love and support, bring a dear friend with you or come and make some new quilting friends. I have seen huge friendships formed from this beginning class.
Look forward to seeing you in class!! - hugs, Cyn
Required book - Make a Log Cabin / Eleanor Burns (Available at Quilters Cottage, we have them ordered for you)
Sewing machine - Please make sure your machine is in good working condition and bring your accessory box and user manual. If you have a ¼” quilter’s foot for your machine bring it, if you don’t have one you may want to see if one is available for your machine and order one according to your make and model – it really is almost a must for quilting and if anything it makes your like so much easier!!! Talk to the shop about this if you are confused about this foot. Make sure you have a new needle in your machine.
Ivory or light grey all purpose cotton thread & ivory or your color preference hand quilting cotton thread. One spool each is plenty and go ahead and wind two bobbins of your all purpose thread. Aurifil Brand preferred
Thimble that fits middle finger, if you want to wait on this until the second class that is suggested. I’ll be giving you some examples and sizing at the first class. You will not need this until second class.
Rotary cutters – I suggest a 60mm & a 28mm, this will give you a large one for cutting strips and then a smaller one for trimming. (if you can only get one – get the 60mm)
Rulers – I suggest the 8 1/2” x 24” ruler, see Quilter’s Cottage for my suggestion & a 12” x 1” for trimming. Creative Grids Brand preferred
