Patchwork Block Club (12 months)
Fancy a monthly patchwork challenge? A regular session as part of a creative community? A chance to build your skills?
Our patchwork block of the month club will run over 12 sessions. Some basic patchwork knowledge is expected but it is perfect for those relatively new to patchwork or anyone looking to expand their patchwork skills. In each session of this course you will make a different block using a variety of patchwork techniques.
Techniques covered will include machine piecing, appliqué and foundation paper piecing.
Your 12 blocks can be put together to make a stunning quilt or, if you prefer, used in a variety of different ways; cushions, bags, a block keeper perhaps?
If you wish to make a quilt from your blocks you will have the choice of using a quilt as you go technique or creating a whole quilt top to quilt on your own machine, on our quilt frame or send off to a lonarm quilting service.
The sessions are designed so that you can create most of the block during the session but there may be a little homework, especially if you decide to quilt as you go. By meeting monthly there is a chance to stay on top off the workload and enjoy the creation of the quilt with the rest of your group.
Finished quilt size would be approx 48″ 64″.
This course can be paid for on 3 equal instalments by selecting the Paypal Pay in 3 at checkout.
What you will need
This course lends itself to using up your stash for a scrappy finish. You will need the equivalent of approximately 10 fat quarters to complete the course plus some background fabric (approx 2m if making a quilt) backing and binding. If the blocks are put together in a quilt it will measure 48″ x 64″.
