Advanced Beginner Quilting: Combination & Hourglass Blocks

Have you completed beginning quilting and your wondering what’s next? Our Advanced Beginner Quilting classes are the perfect next step. Each class series will focus on a different common quilt block that you’ll see over and over again in quilts. In this advanced beginner class, we'll be focusing on the Combination and Hourglass Blocks. It can be difficult to sew so the diagonals exactly bisect the square. We have some great tips to help you easily and accurately sew these blocks. Just like Beginning Quilting, the goal is for you to finish the pillow at the end of the three sessions, so there will be homework each session.

Class 1: You’ve already learned to cut your fabric during Beginning Quilting, so we’ll have you do that ahead of time and we can get right to the sewing. During the first class, you’ll learn to sew hourglass blocks and combination units. You’ll use the Tucker Trimmer to perfectly trim down each block. You’ll also be sewing 4 patches and half square triangles.

Class 2: During the second class, you’ll use all the blocks you’ve created to assemble the Queen’s Petticoat Block and quilt your pillow top.

Class 3: For the final class, you’ll learn how to create piping for the edge of your pillow. You’ll also insert a zipper in the pillow back. You’ll leave this class with a finished pillow that you can pop a pillow form in at home.

Completion of Beginning Quilting is not a prerequisite for Advanced Beginner Quilting, but you do need to be comfortable with basic quilting skills including cutting fabric, 1/4” seam, and pressing.

The $75 class fee includes nine hours of instruction time and printed pattern. You’ll need to bring your sewing machine and basic sewing supplies each week. You’ll also need to select fabric prior to class. We encourage you to purchase your fabric at Rae-Bon to better ensure a high quality finished product.
