Class 2 will be scheduled in April. Increase your skills or sign up for the first time. 

Class prerequisites:

  • Each student must purchase their own copy of the program.  Essentials kit includes all templates and software is presented on a beautiful USB drive.
  • Experience using your quilting machine is essential.  Students should bring their own machine including all accessories* and power cord.  Machines with larger hoop sizes will allow students to use the larger-sized templates.  However, machines that accepts a 6x10 hoop will also work well.

*accessories include the screwdriver in case of minor problems i.e. breaking a needle, inserting a fresh needle.  Be prepared for the little glitches that inevitably happy during classes.

Supplies needed:

  • Practice quilt sandwich (quilt top, batting, and backing).  Sandwich can be basted or pinned.  Minimum size 36x36.  A solid color fabric for the “top” is preferred for contrast.  It is simpler to use a 36x36 cut of fabric and cut the batting and backing to the same size.  No need to make quilt blocks at this point.  The class is intended to teach students how to use the Clear Blue Tiles.
  • Thread – contrasting color to quilt top
  • Needles size 90/14
  • Pins
  • Water soluble markers
  • 6x12 ruler
  • Scissors (shears and pointed tip)
  • Rotary cutter and mat
  • Small iron and ironing mat
  • Tape measure

First class session will include learning how to mark the quilt sandwich including measuring and determining quilting designs and placement. 

Second class session will include more practice on techniques learned in 1st session.  Instructor will move on to proper techniques for adding borders and sashing, how to cut and stitch bindings, how to sew mitred corners and final hand finishing for students interested in learning the most perfect finishing technique.
