  • Piecing to create square quilt blocks
  • Pressing tips and techniques

Skill requirements: Basic sewing experience required.

Material requirements: You will be required to purchase fabrics, batting and thread for your quilt.

You are welcome to bring any fabrics that you would like to use from home that you wish to incorporate into your design.

Nancy has also taught mystery quilt class at Westshore Quilters Retreats and worked at Satin Moon from 2005 to 2016. We’re very excited to have Nancy onboard to teach quilting at The Makehouse.
