Want to upgrade your home with your creative and skillful talent? We got you! This class will go through the step-by-step to make a beautiful, elegant, and modern pieced quilt block. It’s a great way to add some elevated handmade elements into your holiday decorations and traditions. You’ll learn how to create this block as a pillow, wall hanging, and/or table runner.
As with all advanced beginner level courses, these classes are designed to perfect some of the basics and introduce new quilting techniques. Techniques learned in this block are 8 in 1 Half-Square Triangles (HSTs), multi-split triangle HSTs, Quick Corner Units, and square within square.
There will likely be some homework in between classes, but our experienced teacher is ready to meet you where you’re at, and as always, the classroom will be available for use during the week for all class projects.

*Skill Level: Advanced Beginner – You have a good handle on the basics and are ready to dip your toe into more challenging waters. You’re still fairly new to sewing from patterns and could use help with how to manipulate the pattern to get a better fit. You want to add some new skills to your repertoire (invisible zippers, setting-in sleeves, sewing with a serger, etc.). Classes generally require homework.
