Class Description:

Are you ready to move BEYOND creating ruler work quilts with the Quilt-As-You-Go method? Are you comfortable when working with templates on medium sized projects such as bed runners, small wall hangings, or baby quilts? If you can answer “YES” to these questions – you are ready for … AND Beyond! In this class, Donelle will take you through the construction of a 62” x 83” quilt (block size: 9 1/2”) during the first 3 class sessions. You will learn how to piece, press, join your blocks and borders, & sandwich your quilt in preparation for easy Template Quilting. There will be 6 additional classes, each focused on Template Quilting a particular part of the quilt. This quilt features only 6 fabrics and you will have the opportunity to purchase fabric kits or select your own fabrics. The pattern is a FREE download and fabric requirements will be shared with you upon registration. Donelle will be using the Weightless Quilter to make management of the quilt very easy while template quilting. At the end of the 9 sessions, you will have a completely template quilted quilt, including instruction on the binding application. Are you ready to move BEYOND? If so, we have a seat for you in … AND Beyond!
