Hand Classes

Hand Classes are all taught by Budding Star Quilts owner, Kathy.  Whether you are just learning to sew or are a seasoned veteran, we have the class for you.  Most classes are offered on Wednesday mornings from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM beginning Sept 6 for the fall session.

Beginning Hand Quilting:

This class will take students from the basics of how to choose fabrics through how to bind a finished quilt. Time will be spent on piecing, applique, and the quilting stitch.  Students will complete five small projects.  Perfect for the beginner or those who have done some quilting but would like to sharpen their skills.

Eight sessions, $60 + supplies (Text required: Super Quilter II)

Advanced Hand Quilting:

This class is designed to build on techniques learned in Beginning Hand Quilting.  Students will refine piecing and applique techniques, draft patters from a picture, design their own blocks and work with color.  During the class, students will complete a full-size album (sampler) quilt top. Quilting will be done after the completion of this session.
