Sampler quilt class offered in Yankton A sampler quilt class begins Oct. 18 at Four Seasons Fabric in Yankton.
The sampler quilt from Atkinson Designs Lessons from Mama book will be taught by Mary Waller of Vermillion.
The 52" x 68" quilt features 11 traditional pieced quilt blocks and variations and a unique border design. The blocks are constructed with a variety of techniques, so class participants will learn a wide variety of skills.
"This is a great project for beginning and experienced quilters," Waller said. " We'll cover many of the basic quilting techniques, including strip-piecing and several star designs. None are difficult. Quilters today have tools and techniques to make these easy and versatile."
A sample quilt and other projects from the Lessons from Mama book are on display through Oct. 15 at Four Seasons Fabric. The class begins Thursday, Oct. 18 at 5:45 p.m. and meets the third Thursday of each month for a year.
Waller has been designing quilts and teaching sewing and quilting since 1991. She has taught at regional and national conferences. Waller is profiled in the National Quilting Association's Fall 2000 journal for her work.
