Quilting: Step-By-Step Instruction
Making a sampler quilt is a great way to learn or practice different piercing and quilting skills. In learning to quilt, a variety of specially chosen quilt blocks can be used to familiarize yourself with twenty different piercing techniques. Full-sized patterns are given along with instructions and diagrams to make quilting fun. The quilting class previously completed a small group project using Freedom Quilt Code Blocks, while others used Appliqué, Hand Embroidery, Pre-Stamped Pillow Panels, and a variety of Hand Made Quilt Blocks.
If you are interested in learning how to construct quilts, please leave your information for Mildred A. Green at the Library by calling 708-343-1847, and ask for Information Services. The Quilting class meets at the Maywood Public Library District on every Tuesday from 12:00 noon until 2:30 pm in Room 202.
