Skill level requirement: this is NOT a learn to sew class; you must have sewn in the recent past, and be confident operating a sewing machine independently. See below for more info. If you're a total beginner, check out our Sewing 101 Workshops.


If you've been wanting to learn to sew modern + fun patchwork quilts, this is the class for you! In this one-day intensive, you'll learn how to construct a Looper Quilt top. 

Looper is a unique quilt pattern with modular blocks, meaning they can be rearranged in any direction to create a continuous design. Follow the suggested designs or create your own!

 

This workshop will cover:

  • How to design a LOOPER quilt layout (check out #looperquilt on Instagram for some amazing inspiration from other makers!)
  • How to accurately cut straight and curved fabric pieces with a rotary cutter and cutting mat
  • How to assemble your straight and curved fabric pieces (you must have machine sewing experience; see below)
  • How to iron in quilting
  • Students will learn to create and assemble quilt blocks for their design, however students will not complete a quilt top during this workshop! Our focus will be learning the skills needed to create this quilt, and students will use the blocks made and skills learned in class to complete the quilt top on their own.  If you don't have a machine at home, check out our Open Sewing Hours! 

 

Want to make a complete quilt from the top you start in this workshop? Come back for our Beginner Quilting Workshop, where you'll learn how to assemble your "quilt sandwich" with batting and binding. Please note: We can only accommodate crib-sized quilts in our Beginner Quilting workshop due to time limitations.
