    Question: What does it mean by Duration of 10 or 14 weeks?
    Our standard duration for teacher help is 10 weeks. If you feel you need longer we have an option to select 14 weeks of teacher help. We find this is plenty of time for the student to be engaged. After the teacher time is ended you still have access to the class data and you also have access to extend your time at a later date (details are included in each class)
    Question: Is the workshop self-paced or do lessons open at certains times such as on a weekly schedule?

    Once purchased, you can access the class data at any time, 24 hours a day for as long as you need. On occasion, a teacher or workshop may retire, in this case we will give you fair warning so you can download the class data so you can still access the information.

    This is a beginners class in Bargello, learning all the Bargello basics while you make four samples using a different set of seasonal colours for each or combining all samples to make one large quilt. Techniques include staggered seams, matching seams, fractured strips and quilt-as-you-go.

    Note: Once purchased, you can access the class data any time, 24 hours a day and you get immediate access. (if you don't have an account we suggest you sign up for one prior to purchase) 

    The four samples are also available as individual patterns.

    Each quilt requires extra fabric for borders, the amount depending on your choice of border style. Lesson One will contain a complete discussion of appropriate fabric types. If you have a large stash, you should be able to find what you need right at home since individual yardage requirements are small. Individual pieces measure 25" - 36" wide.

    Batting and backing – Again this depends on the border style, but to give you an idea, my quilts used a total of 40" x 105"

    Lesson One: Spring

    • SEVEN spring coloured fabrics - minimum of 6" full width OR fat quarter of each colour

    Lesson Two: Summer

    • NINE summer coloured fabrics - minimum of 6" full width OR fat quarter of each colour

    Lesson Three: Autumn

    • ELEVEN autumn coloured fabrics - minimum of 4" full width OR fat eighth of each colour
    • ONE fracture fabric - 1/2 yard

    Lesson Four: Winter

    • EIGHT winter coloured fabrics - minimum of 6" full width OR fat quarter of each colour
