Description

Class Experience

At the conclusion of this 8-week course, your child will have completed a 48"x61" quilt top and will be ready to send their quilt top to a quilting service for completion OR be qualified for the second course in this series, Making the Quilt Sandwich. This second course teaches students how to turn a quilt top into a completed quilt including batting, backing, and hand-made binding. This second course also teaches students the “Stitch in the Ditch” technique of joining the three layers of the quilt.
Students will work on creating their quilt top individually after they watch the course video. 

Week 1 Assignment - Students will upload a video of themself threading and loading the bobbin and installing and threading the needle.

Week 2 Assignment - Students will upload a video of themself sewing a straight line using a ¼” sewing foot on a piece of fabric. Students should comment on at least two classmates' posts with a question or encouraging comment.

Week 3 Assignment - Students will use the rotary cutter and acrylic ruler to cut 18 of the 10” layer cake squares in half and will upload a photo of their cut fabric. Students should comment on at least two classmates' posts with a question or encouraging comment.

Week 4 Assignment: Students will spend this week laying out their quilt pattern, labeling the pieces, and pinning their pieces together. Students should upload a photo of their quilt layout before pinning the pieces together, and share about how they decided to arrange the pieces. Students must comment on at least two classmates' posts.

Week 5 Assignment - Students will spend this week piecing their fabric together. Students will upload a photo of their pieced rows arranged on the ground and will post about what went well and what was challenging. Students should comment on at least two classmates' posts.

Week 6 Assignment - Students will piece their rows, completed in week 5, together in order to assemble the quilt top. Students should post a photo of their rows pieced together and share one thing that went well or that was challenging. Students should comment on at least two classmates' posts.

Week 7 Assignment - Students will "square up" their quilts and upload a photo of their finished product.

Week 8 Assignment - Students should comment on two classmates' finished quilts.

While this course is not graded, the instructor will provide feedback to students throughout the course. Students will successfully complete this course by completing their quilt top.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents may occasionally need to help younger learners with the sewing machine if students get stuck. Parents should supervise young learners to ensure safety.
