This is a class for complete beginners and in the 10 weeks you will learn all the basic skills to make quilt.
We won't be making a full size quilt but a small wall hanging 30" x 30". You will be make a wall hanging which consists of four 12" blocks ( each different), with strips in between (sashing) and you will put them together just as you would on a full sized quilt. You will then quilt it and bind it.
I am sure there are lots of words there that are unfamiliar to you, but once you entre the world of patchwork & quilting they will be second nature. Any questions about the course please get in touch 01349 864689

The centre of the quilt uses 5 fat quarters.
If you are a bit daunted by making a bigger quilt don't be. In this class I will show you how to make the smaller size quilt , you then quilt it, then you add the large border (also quilted) to the small quilt, so you are not quilting a large heavy quilt.
The 9 patch is a lovely simple quilt, and don't worry you will NOT be cutting out hundreds of square, we will be using strips of fabric sewing them together and cutting them up.
The quilt in the pictures below are on a standard double bed.
