Preparation for your quilt sandwiches

1.)  Baste the 2 sandwiches and leave appropriate ½” from the raw edges

2.) Mark two 6” squares on one square. For the remaining space on the sandwich,
mark 2 parallel lines 3 ½” apart.

3.) Markers: for practice purpose, you can use sharp fine point or chalk that you are
able to see. We will discuss marking tools during class.

Please purchase supplies at least two weeks ahead of time to ensure you have everything you need. We are happy to take supply orders over the phone and set them aside for you.
* Please ensure your machine is in good, working order for free motion prior to class. We do not have the capacity to troubleshoot tension, thread breakage or other issues during the timeframe of the class. Sewing Machine Shop staff are happy to help you get your machine into tip-top shape prior to class. If you need a tune up or a look over, please bring the machine into the shop a few weeks in advance of the class date.
