Simplify with Camille Roskelley Class Plan

Square One: A simple, modern quilt

Class Description

  • This quilt would be perfect for a beginning quilting group, but could also be perfect for a modern class, with a higher skill level.
  • This class will teach simple block construction, sashing, and an optional raw edge Honey Bun binding.
  • Each student will complete a beautiful and unique quilt.
  • Students will leave with a completed quilt top, a basic knowledge of how to quilt it on their machine (instructions included in the book), and a fabric/quilting addiction!

Class Length

  • 4 hour class if the student comes with a basic knowledge of piecing.
