Design your very own patchwork quilt in this 6 week evening class.
Patchwork Quilt Workshop
Quilting and patchwork is all the rage at the moment so why not make use of that fabric stash and join us at The Craft Studio for this new 6 Week class. You will learn how to use all the tools of the trade aswell as getting to grips with all those ‘ quilting terms’ and measurements that can seem so daunting.
Once you are familiar with your equipment, you will learn how to design a ‘ disappearing 9-patch’ This sounds and looks intricate and impressive, but is very easy and quick to make and so a perfect beginners quilt.
Once you have completed your quilt top you will be shown how to add wadding, a backing and bias binding to your finished creation.
This is a beginners’ patchwork quilt making course, but in order to follow the instructions, you MUST know how to use a sewing machine confidently and unaided. You will also need to be comfortable with a needle and thread in your hand! The quilt will require both machine sewing and hand sewing throughout.
During the course you can choose to either machine or hand quilt. The tutor will advise and show examples relating to this.
The size of the quilt you will be making will measure 48.5″ (123cm) x 64″ (161cm) which is large enough for a child or a very generous lap quilt.
