Quilting Bootcamp 101 - The Basics is a two part class for anyone who wants to learn to make a quilt. In this class you will learn all of the beginning steps to work on your first quilt. Never cut with a rotary cutter? No problem. Have a quilting ruler, but don't know how to measure and cut with it?  We teach you. Learn these basic skills and more, all while you are making your first quilt.  Even better, you leave with the resources you will need (class #2) to finish the quilt and choose a skill building, next pattern, for your next quilt top.
