Do you have a stack of fat quarters that you’d like to make into a quilt? Sam Hunter is here to guide you in the Fourteen Squared Quilt Class. Sam keeps no secrets in the 16 chapter step by step video class. In this on-demand video class, Sam will show you how to make her Fourteen Squared quilt pattern from start to finish. The sized of the finished quilt is approximately 54’’ x 68’’ (including optional borders).
Fourteen Squared is made from simple squares, rectangles and double squares (squares-within-squares).
The blocks go together in a snap with easy planned construction techniques that result in something that looks like a far more complicated improvisational quilt – call it “planned improv.”
While this quilt looks great using 14 fat quarters, imagine the possibilities of fussy cutting your fabric! This class goes over both options, and shows examples of each.
Lessons in this course include tools, a discussion on fabric choices and arranging your fabric for a balanced composition and cutting. Sam will also go through her process of how she selected her fabrics from a larger selection of fabrics. Have you ever been stuck cutting fat quarter after fat quarter? Sam shows you how to save time by stacking your fabric for quick and easy cutting. Next, you’ll pair your fabrics and then prepare for stitching by learning all about accurate quarter inch seams. Then, you’ll watch as Sam lays out her quilt on the design wall, and hear all about her process in what she considers when creating her quilt top. After that, you can watch how she sews together the top and then measures and applies borders. You’ll also learn how to avoid the pitfall of wavy borders, that you can use in future quilts. Finally, the course will conclude with a discussion about how to finish your quilt.
