This workshop will focus on block design, rotary cutting, and piecing for three traditional quilt blocks.
Students who attended the first “Basic Quilting Workshop,” and anyone with basic sewing skills is encouraged to attend.
There will be a very minimal fabric supply list provided by the instructor.

The MACK has a number of sewing machines available for this class, but if you have your own, you are encouraged to bring it. Sometimes it’s more fun to use your own. Please make sure you have a new “universal or quilting needle” on your machine. If you have a piecing foot (1/4″ foot) and a zigzag foot, please bring those as well. Most of what we will be doing is a straight stitch so don’t worry if you don’t have these.
The following is a list of other tools you may need. They can be obtained at Hancock Fabrics, Hobby Lobby, or perhaps Walmart:
- Small sharp scissors to cut fabric only. (If yours have been used to cut paper, please get a new pair. Paper dulls the scissors.)
- Spool of white, ecru, or light gray cotton machine quilting thread.
- Small box of thin quilting pins. These are longer and thinner than regular straight pins, and will typically have a larger flat head on them. Regular straight pins will work but look for the long ones.
- Pin cushion.
- Seam ripper (A good quilter will always have to “un-sew” at some point.)
- Small box or tray to hold your supplies in your work area. Plastic storage boxes work well.
- Twelve inch ruler, preferably transparent.
