This class series takes place at Mary's studio inside Whitty Books 2306 East Admiral Boulevard in Tulsa.

The Mary Make & Do Modern Mini: a complete introduction to quilting, from cutting to binding!  Mary loves to make learning to quilt as fun & friendly as possible, she walks you through every step, and holds your hand as you learn all the foundational skills. 

This fun little patchwork sampler covers most 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
