Looper Quilt Workshop
If you've been wanting to learn to sew modern + fun patchwork quilts, this is the class for you! In this one-day workshop, you'll 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 work toward making a 40" x 40" Baby size quilt top. Those interested in making a larger quilt can use the blocks made and skills learned in class to complete a larger quilt top on their own.
Want to make a complete quilt from the top you make in this workshop? Come back for our Beginner Quilting Intensive, where you'll learn how to assemble your "quilt sandwich" with batting and binding.
Please note this is not a learn-to-sew class. Students must have basic machine sewing knowledge and be comfortable using a sewing machine. If you do not know how to sew, please take one of our Sewing 101 classes as a prerequisite to this class.
Tools + Fabric
We will provide all necessary tools for use during class (cutting mats, rotary cutters, rulers, pins, irons, ironing boards, etc). Each student will have access to their own sewing machine courtesy of BERNINA of America
Fabric and thread is not included in the registration fee and will be available to purchase during class at a 10% discount to workshop attendees. A printed copy of the Looper pattern will be provided during class and is yours to keep!
