Beacon Quilt Bee

Sundays 1/14, 1/21, 1/28, 2/4, 2/11 and 2/25 (no class 2/18)
Love color and texture? Love meeting people and sharing experience and encouragement? Love family and friends and want to wrap them in warmth? QUILTING IS FOR YOU. Take this class, we'll prove it.

Using the "Augustina" pattern, you'll learn the fundamental skills needed to make a quilt including color theory, choosing fabrics, measuring and cutting, piecing, creating a quilt top, making the quilt sandwich, quilting and binding! At the end of the 6 week class you'll have a cozy lap quilt.

Use the "Burn Bright" quilt pattern to practice strip piecing and sharpen your perception of color value OR work on another pattern or quilted project of your choosing (please discuss with instructor before series begins).

MATERIALS: Expect to spend between $100-$150 on the materials needed to make a throw-sized quilt (pattern; fabrics for top, backing, and binding; cotton thread for piecing and quilting; batting). The first class will be held at Beetle and Fred and will cover the basics of color theory and fabric selection; students receive 15% off all supplies.

All following sessions will be held at our classroom in the Beacon Music Factory at 333 Fishkill Avenue.

Makeup Days: If you miss a class due to illness, travel, quarantine, etc. you are allotted one Open Studio as a makeup to complete your project. Each student is only allowed one makeup per session.
