Christmas Quilt Course 6 sessions from Tues 12th July 7pm
I'm so excited about this one I can't tell you. For the first time, we are holding classes to help you make your very own Christmas quilt!
We have permission to use the stunning Merry & Bright quilt pattern by Jen Daly.
With pretty houses, presents, baubles, trees and candy; it is the epitomy of Christmas and whether you choose to make it in modern pinks and reds like Jen's or in more traditional colours; we are sure it will become one of your most valued possessions to showcase year after year.
Our course runs over 6 months so you'll have your quilt ready in time. We'll guide you through how to make each block; how to pull it all together; quilting and binding.
You get to choose how many blocks you want to make. The pattern makes up into a wall hanging but you could use the blocks individually/in small groups to make table runners or placemats; or expand it to make a full size quilt.
It's a foundation paper pieced pattern so a great technique to learn.
Dates: Tuesday 12th July, 9th August, 13th September, 11th October, 8th November and 13th December.
If you know that you are not able to make all the dates; don't worry; we will make sure that you can catch up.
Time: 7pm - 9pm
This course is suitable for those with some previous patchwork experience. If you have completed our beginners course; this is the ideal next step. You will, of course, need to complete a number of blocks at home, between the sessions, as there will only be enough time in class, to make 1 or 2 blocks.
The pattern is included in the price of the course but the materials are not.
The wallhanging is fat quarter friendly. Fabric wise for the wall hanging, you will need 6 fat quarters, 1 metre for the background, 1 metre for the backing, 30cm for the binding and some scraps. Full details will be sent out 2 weeks before the class starts.
