The Mary Make & Do Modern Mini: a complete introduction to quilting, from cutting to binding!
This fun little patchwork sampler quilt class covers every step of quilting. It includes all of the most common units of patchwork quilt blocks: half square triangles (HST), flying geese, half rectangle triangles (HRT), and curves, along with sashing, borders, basting, quilting, and binding. All of this skill building goodness in a small-scale size to make it easily doable. You’ll be a quilter before you know it!
“This mini format makes learning the basics of quilting mind-blowingly achievable!”
- Ashley Daly
