    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.

    This is a fun patchwork quilt class designed for beginner to advanced quilters alike. No precise 1/4" seam and cutting do not have to be accurate until the end when you square up the blocks. Lots of tips are included with easy piecing instructions and video support so you can learn the technique with ease. Multiple sizes are included along with the opinion of a single background or alternating block background effect. 

    Make any number of blocks to make as big a quilt as you need. 

    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)

    Practice Block:

    You will need ONE 40” strip in four different fabrics (a total of 4 strips).

    Note: If your strip is not 40” in length you can use shorter lengths that total more than 40”. Example: If you are using fat quarters (approximately 20” length) cut TWO 2 1/2” strips to make the length.

    The best way to select fabrics for this practice block is by using two different fabrics in two colors OR two light/medium fabrics and two dark fabrics


    Each block is made up of ONE 2 1/2” x 40” strip in four different fabrics so times 2 1/2” by the number of blocks you wish to make. Example: For a six-block quilt you will need 15” (say 1/2 yard) of each fabric. For a twelve-block quilt, you will need approximately 7/8 yards.

    Your block has three setting options.

    Option 1 is without background (12” finish)

    Option 2 has a square background setting (19” finish)

    Option 3 has a twisted background setting (16” finish)

    For Options 2 & 3 you will require TWO 4” x 40” strips per block. Example: For a six-block quilt you will need a total of 48”. For alternating backgrounds you would use two fabrics totaling this amount. That is, 24” for each.


    Borders will vary depending on the block option and the number of blocks used. As a guideline, I used approximately 1/2 yard for the first border and 1 – 1 5/8 yard for the second border.

    Additional Requirements:

    Batting and backing fabric at least 4” larger than the quilt size

    Binding fabric

    Thread for piecing and quilting

    Freezer Paper (optional)

    General quilting supplies

    6-1/2” square ruler (ideal but not essential)

    16-1/2” square ruler for option 3 block setting (ideal but not essential)
