Class Schedule


Now that you’ve tamed the tension on your machine, you’re ready to learn alternate uses for the straight line ruler. You will learn double crosshatching and crosshatching on the diagonal. We will also begin using a second ruler, Bernina 4-in-1 ruler or Westalee arc ruler (the same one we are using for the straight line stitching). We will make 2 more blocks, similar to the last one we made in Ruler Work 101. The difference in the look of the new blocks 

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before class to set up your machine.

You’ve pieced your top and quilted it. Now for the binding. Are you having trouble mitering the corners or joining those last 2 ends? Do you hate hand sewing? Then this class is for you. We’ll learn some tips for making the binding and attaching it to your quilt. The class includes a 3-page handout with photos so you will be able to practice this skill again and again.
