Learn everything you need to know to start piecing quilts in this four part class! We will cover fabric selection, preparation, supplies and cutting in our first class then focus on piecing a complete baby quilt! Our final class will be a finishing follow-up where you’ll learn about finishing details such as batting types, quilting options and binding. We will be making a Baby Bear Paw Quilt designed by Jeni Baker. Purchase a kit here at the shop or select your own fabrics.
