Attic Windows - Design and Make a Personal Quilt

This class is a bit different from what you might expect.  I will show you how to explore a variety of window options to suit YOUR fabric and how to design your own one-of-a-kind quilt. You will learn to select the supporting fabrics and sew traditional mitered windows with my fool-proof technique.

Register NOW.

I will be with you every step of the way in the Classroom Forum where everyone can ask questions, get answers and share!  Plus you will be able to show your quilts in the Gallery - I love seeing what everyone has chosen and how their designs are progressing.

This 3-lesson class begins on June 19th. I'm sure you have a fabric that would look wonderful in 'windows'.

In the first lesson you will learn how:
·   an Attic Windows quilt differs from a real life view of a window
·   to determine the scale of your fabric
·   to try different window sizes and select the best ones for your fabric
·   to draft an Attic Windows quilt layout for your particular fabric

In lesson 2 you will learn how to:
·   make a cutting chart for your quilt
·   calculate how much fabric to buy for sashes and frames
·   select fabrics for sashes and frames
·   cut your fabrics
·   sew mitred window sashes

In the last lesson, you will learn how to:
·   sew the frames to your windows
·   sew the windows together
·   audition and add borders
·   finish your quilt

Here are a few photos from previous students. I think  you'll agree - these aren't your 'normal' Attic Windows quilts. Each one was designed FOR the fabric. You can do it too.
