Block by Block - Beginning Quilt Making from Start to Finish with Pat Abbitt - Evening

Jump start your quilting skills with a 16 week intensive class. This class is for beginning quilters as well as those who just want to brush up on techniques. A Quilter's Corner is pleased to announce that Pat Abbitt's popular class is available now. This class has been given rave reviews by our customers with comments such as "best class I have ever taken," "I learned so much," "Pat is an amazing teacher with so much patience," "I now know how to make a quilt from start to finish," and "each class teaches you a new technique." This class is packed with information, tips and techniques! We will start with guidelines on how to choose fabrics, tools that are a must, and then learn a variety of construction and cutting techniques including strip piecing, triangles, applique, foundation (paper) piecing, using templates and Y seams. There are two sessions all about quilting and you will end up with a completed quilt! Most of the sewing and cutting will be done in class. This class format will be lecture, demonstration and then hands-on sewing. There is a $30 book fee (in addition to the class fee) payable directly to the instructor. Complete instructions and patterns are included along with approximately 48 hours of class time ( 3 hour class each week for 16 weeks).
