In this session Aurora will talk about how to read the ruler once you've decided what size block you want. She'll cut corresponding strips from fabric using a rotary cutter and ruler. Then she'll stack the strips, and use the fancy triangle ruler to cut the Half Square Triangles (HSTs)!

Aurora talks about what a quarter inch foot is. She'll show how to make a pile of your squares, and sew them over and over into bunting, how to clip them all apart and get them stacked for ironing. She will also show you the trick to ironing FAST and lastly, trim the extra off each block.

What's the deal with bulk? Why is it important? In this session Aurora will start joining blocks together, and talking about which way to iron them and will make a mini quilt!!

Aurora will talk about how to lay your backing face down, your batting next, and your top quilt last, finally safety pin the whole thing! Then, let's quilt it! Show how to stitch in the ditch and how to do 1" lines! THEN, she will finish that last unsewn line on the big quilt so you can see how to manage the BULK.

In this session you will see how Aurora cut the strips, joins them together and finally irons them. She will get started on the mini quilt and then will transition to the big one.

Now that the binding is all sewn on, it's time to pin to do the very last stitch! Aurora will show how you can really only do 1 corner at a time since you are limited by pins.

Aurora grew up around sewing, her mother is a master seamstress who got her into sewing at an early age, and in turn, she got her mother into knitting and crochet after discovering it to be a more portable addiction. After spending 15 years as an IT professional, she realized that many women with high-stress responsibilities — either in the workplace or in the home — need a hobby in order to de-stress. It is her drive to inspire and support women to find their creative side through sewing and crafting!
