Class Overview

Discover the simple quilt-as-you-go method that makes it fun and easy to finish beautiful projects fast. You'll begin with a place mat design, and learn to sew your fabric directly onto batting and backing before attaching a binding. Presto! Your place mats are done! Next, follow along to create a table runner as you find out how to work with one continuous piece of backing and achieve consistent seam allowances. You'll love the time-saving strip-piecing techniques you learn as you sew a charming pillow, and Maureen will reveal her go-to trick for adding strips at a precise 45-degree angle. Then, take on two quilts with can't-miss tips and tricks for breaking large projects down into manageable panels and strip-piecing patchwork blocks. By the end of class, you'll have confidence to take any project from start to stunning finish with quilt-as-you-go techniques.
