Skills you’ll learn:
quilt design, piecing, quilting

Learn foundational improv quilting techniques start to finish while making a functional potholder!  With the improv quilting technique, you’ll work in an intuitive manner to piece as you go to create a unique, freeform design. We’ll work with reclaimed and vintage fabrics to piece together your top. Learn how to plan out your color scheme, cut fabric, and begin sewing the top of your potholder from the center with a straight stitch. We’ll discuss how to choose the correct batting for the inside, and you’ll back the quilted piece with a larger piece of fabric.  Lastly, the class will learn how to finish the edging of the potholder to create a finished look.

A variety of fabric will be available to you, but feel free to bring in bedsheets, jeans, and other fabrics from home to create your quilt. Participants will leave with a finished potholder, and the knowledge to continue working on larger quilt projects outside of class.

Participants should have basic knowledge of how to use a sewing machine or have taken
Perennial’s Sewing Machine Basics workshop.
