Back to Basics with Nina

These classes are designed to help anyone learn basic cutting and stitching of quilt blocks.  You will learn Nine Patch, Half Square Triangles, Flying Geese, and Square in a Square blocks.  Then you will learn how to combine these blocks to create Pinwheels, Churn Dash, Bear Paws, and Stars.

You will use your straight-edge ruler, Eleanor Burns 6-inch Triangle Square Up Ruller, and Eleanor Burns 6-inch Flying Geese Ruler.  We sell these rulers at Calico Basket.  Please ensure your sewing machine is in good working order prior to class and bring your instruction booklet to class with you.
