Patterns, Techniques & Tips

with Jenny Doan
Quilting Quickly
Learn how to make quilts in a fraction of the time. This class is perfect for beginners and quilters who want to pick up the pace of piecing.

Let instructor Jenny Doan introduce you to amazing time-saving techniques for producing gorgeous quilts. Jenny makes it simple to piece a variety of quilt blocks using pre-cut fabric charm packs, jelly rolls, layer cakes and honey buns. No matter your skill level, you're sure to learn new tips and quilting techniques. Using pre-cuts takes away the intimidation (and cost) of choosing several different prints that go together, and allows you to cut to the quilting chase. Learn to make nine-patch, pinwheel and hourglass quilt blocks. Stitch with Jenny to create your own tote bag, too!
