Improv Quilting

Improv Quilting Class 

Create your own small hand quilted blanket or wall hanging. This class will cover basics of piecing and improv block formations. You'll hand quilt your piece and bind it, creating something that is truly one of a kind! There are no real rules in improv quilting, come ready to explore with an open mind. 

Depending on how large you want your finished project to be, you will have homework between classes. At home you will need an iron, fabric shears or rotary cutter and mat, and a sewing machine. 

You will need the following items for class^: 

  • Working Sewing machine with needle*
  • Machine Thread
  • Fabric scraps--we have a lot to choose from but you can bring you own. Improv quilts lend them self to old clothes, or textiles. 
  • Hand quilting thread
  • Hand quilting needle
  • Beeswax
  • Large piece of fabric for the back (or you can piece this) 
  • Batting
  • Safety pins
  • Marking tool 
  • Thimble 

*Please bring your own sewing machine that is in good working order. We do have a limited amount of shop machines available for use. Please call to inquire/reserve before purchasing class. 

^For the first class you will only need a machine, machine needle, machine thread, and any fabric scraps. We will go over the rest of the materials in the first class.
