Learn to Quilt 101: Star Quilt

In this class you will learn to make a beautiful star quilt top. This class is perfect if you have never sewn a quilt before or need a refresher on basic quilting skills.

 We will cover all the basics of sewing and quilt making from:

  • Using a sewing machine (if it’s your first time)

  • Quick and safe cutting with a rotary cutter

  • Accurate piecing and seam allowance

  • Trimming pieced quilt blocks

  • Putting your quilt top together

Everyone works at their own pace, so it is possible that you won't finish your quilt top by the end of the second class. But we're here to support you through every step along the way and will send you off with all our best tips and tricks to finish your top if you don't get it done during class! 

Want to learn how to quilt your finished quilt top? Sign up for Chelsea's Walking Foot Quilting workshop as well!

Instructor: Chelsea Hard
Instructor Bio: Chelsea made her first quilt perched on the edge of the couch with her sewing machine on the coffee table. Now practicing better ergonomics and covered in thread, she enjoys all aspects of quilting both by hand and machine. When not quilting or teaching, she can be found purchasing crafts supplies she'll only use once, adding too much Liberty fabric to her online shopping cart & actively avoiding organizing her studio. She is the former president of the South Bay Area Modern Quilt Guild and an award-winning jam maker. Chelsea currently resides in the East Bay with her two sewing machines & two handsome Doodles.
