Back to Basics
BB5 Make Your Walking Foot Run!
This is our original walking foot class - but just the border part…for those of you who like the more traditional looking quilt. Quilt your blocks as you desire and then using your walking foot for borders - with curves, too - is a great way to conquer that pile of UFOs that keeps growing. If you haven't yet discovered your walking foot, this class is for you. You'll never underestimate your walking foot again!

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!
