    This is a good basic but also a fun class for any student! All in six hours, you will design, select fabrics, cut and sew a quilt top.... then layer, quilt and finish it off.  You will also assess and evaluate as you go, making adjustments as necessary with Elizabeth's guidance and expertise.

    Level: For all quilters, particularly beginners, and perfect for those who are short of time, but who love to make quilts.

    Furthermore, it is an excellent class for a teacher looking for a one-day class idea….. A typical quilt class day is six hours.

    Plus! It involves working from your stash. No extras are needed.

    Elizabeth asked three friends to go through the course – every week she took photos and short movies of them working. One had never made a quilt before, one had done embroidery and stitchery, and the third had made one traditional sampler quilt.

    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)

    Time Duration applies only to teacher access for your question and answer duration.

        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? 
        Workshops are self-paced. All lessons are available as soon as you access the class for the first time unless otherwise stated in the workshop description.
        Question: After I register for a workshop, how long can I access the class data (videos, text, images etc)
        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.
        Question: Do I need to make an account?
        Yes, you need an account so you can log into the workshop. If you don't have an account we suggest you sign up for one prior to purchase. Workshops held at academyofquilting.com require an account on that website.
        Question: Can I ask the teacher questions?
        Yes, you can ask the teacher any questions relating to the workshop. Details on how to do this are provided in the course.
