Class Overview

Learn the stress-free, speedy way to complete a quilt so beautiful, no one will know it was a cinch to sew! Author Marti Michell shows you how to adapt for quilting as you go, so you can recreate any style with ease. Learn how to prepare your foundation with batting and backing already incorporated, then dive into string quilting to quickly transform strips into dynamic blocks. Follow along to create wonky and traditional log cabin blocks — once you're done piecing, you're done quilting too! Marti shares a range of ways to join your blocks and when to use each method, including twin and single finishing strips and a multi-layer seam strategy. You'll also find out how to adapt complicated favorites like the Ohio star to the quilt-as-you-go process, and discover smart techniques for bulk busting, and quickly adding borders and binding. Amazing quilts are only one class away—start today!
