This is an ongoing monthly class that will teach you how to finish and quilt your own quilts using rulers. Any project you wish to bring and receive individualized instruction upon is welcome. Marilyn will also have an ongoing quilt pattern available if you wish to work on that. The quilt featured until the end of the year will be the "Folded Corners" quilting hanging in our classroom.

It is fast paced but interesting. It will increase your knowledge of integrating the various parts of the software together to create one project.

A printout of the exact steps to produce the project and a copy of the video will be available to be loaded onto a USB stick, the student's own or one may be purchased at the Bernina desk for $12.99 The first class will be using the Quilter portion of the software. We will be designing a small quilt, applying fabrics, learning how to scan fabrics, inserting an applique and an embroidery design into the quilt. So much to learn but a great way to design your quilts.
