Skill level suggestions when taking classes at 3 Hens and A Chick Quilt Shop.
Beginning in January 2021, teachers are adding suggested Skill Levels to our classes. These are the guidelines to follow when choosing a class:
Basic Beginner - has knowledge of sewing machine, knows how to thread machine and wind a bobbin and has desire to learn quilting
Skilled Beginner - has experience sewing with their machine; understands quilting terms like: rotary cutter, quarter-inch seam, binding, can read and understand quilting patterns and has desire to try new techniques
Intermediate - has quilted several years or has sewn several quilting projects, has attended classes on quilting; seam allowances and block sizes are becoming more accurate, and you are willing to try more advanced techniques in quilting
Advanced - All beginner and intermediate skills above are mastered, you are up for the next challenge of learning more difficult techniques, and you are still learning and growing
Is your machine skipping stitches, making funny noises, or just not sewing quite right? Have it Cleaned and Serviced and make it feel young again! Bring your Machine during the week of July 19th through July 23rd. Most of them will be ready for pickup by Saturday, July24th.
Start with a layer cake ( or 24- 10" squares) and some background fabric to make this quilt.
It's in the sewing and cutting that gives you the angled pieces to make the blocks. Depending on the way you piece your blocks you get the up and down or the side to side look.
