Back to Basics
BB13 Basic Blocks
This is a new "Back to Basics" and we're aiming it towards beginners or anyone who wants a little help. If you LOVE Bernina's Block Party Quilt (See BOMs and Other Stuff on page 12) but are a little intimidated with any of the blocks, feel free to join us as that is the block we'll be doing each month, with a new technique taught each month. Sew… stop in occasionally, or stop in each month, and brush up on your basics! (Just starting to quilt? We suggest you take BB2 Quilting Basics - CP2 [see below] to get started on the right foot!)
Thursdays - 5/25, 6/22, 7/27, 8/24 - 10-12 noon
BB2 Quilting Basics - CP²
Are your quilts not quite always square? Do your quilts not lie flat? Do you have a hard time getting your intersections to line up because…your blocks aren't all the same size??? Join Penny for CP² – Cutting, Piecing and Pressing. These three elements are the basis for creating a project that lines up, lays flat and looks great! Learn the importance of accurate cutting and piecing and how to achieve that accuracy. And learn just how pressing can affect your finished project…and how to do it properly. This class is for beginners and experienced quilters alike…Sometimes we all need a reminder of the basics!
