Open Patchwork dates with Val – level: anyone
No fixed agenda on these dates and we have a little more room (usually) than at the shop to work on slightly larger projects – layer up your quilt, do the quilting etc. Bring your own project along to work on or start something new with Val – some ideas are listed below. If you find something in a magazine that you would like to work on, please discuss with Val before the class.
£49.00 per session, the class
fee includes vegetarian lunch and light refreshments during the day. Please advise us/remind us of any special
Food for thought /ideas for class:
Log Cabin/Trip Around the World/Irish Chain- all part of the Quilt in a Day series which are really great. For anyone starting out in patchwork they should be tackled in that order (degree of difficulty) but all three are really great for introducing you to fast piecing, and rotary cutting – and we aim to get the top finished at the class!
Simple squares work well!
Jelly Jazz – uses 2 ½” strips/jelly roll (but you will need to buy a pattern for this which Val will have!)
Shoo Fly/Monkey Wrench from Pre-cuts – layer cakes and charm packs – great for beginners.
9 block sampler – uses 2 ½” strips of fabric to great effect (and Thangles for your triangles)
Take 9 – 9 fabrics that is! and produce a very quick quilt
Sampler – a quilt designed to be made by beginners with several fast piecing techniques covered in the construction.
1930’s scrap quilt (but can be made in any fabrics and you can take advantage of the pre-cut 5” squares and 2 ½” strip rolls)
Modern quilts – simple and easy to make using stunning fabric and straightforward sewing.
