Christmas Quilt Course 6 sessions from Mon 25th July 1.30pm
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 5 months with 6 sessions. 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.
Dates: Monday 25th July; 22nd August, 5th September, 26th September, 24th October, 28th November.
Note that there are 2 classes in September so that we make sure we have enough time to complete it all by December. If you know that you are not able to make all the dates; it will be possible to catch up at one of our monthly Patchwork Sewcials.
Time: 1.30pm - 4.30pm
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, 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.
