"My First Quilt" Beginning Quilting Series
We are starting a new round of Beginning Quilting classes in February! Make "My First Quilt" with Charlotte as you learn the basics of machine piecing. You'll make the quilt top seen above during the four class sessions. Choose your own fabric colors to make the quilt to your taste (we're happy to help with this part!). Class will use Pat Sloan's Teach Me to Make My First Quilt book which will be a great resource for years to come. Head to the RQ calendar for more details and to reserve your seat. Classes start February 6th so don't delay!
