Basic Quilt Making - Jacob's Ladder

This beginner's class will meet once a week for 6 weeks, for a 2-3 hour session. You'll learn to use a rotary cutter, sew an accurate 1/4 inch seam, and make 4 patches and half-square triangles to create a traditional quilt block. Make 4 blocks, add borders, then baste and machine quilt your project before adding a sleeve, attaching the binding and a label. You'll have a finished project in six weeks!
