Make a Baby Quilt - Patchwork for Beginners

Monday 17 December 2018

Session: 1


Time: 10.30am - 5.30pm

Level: Beginner Plus

Maximum Class Size: 6

Level: This class is designed for beginners to quilting but open to all abilities should you just want to come and refresh your patchwork and quilting knowledge! You will need to be reasonably confident with a sewing machine to attend this class.

During this full day session you will have the opportunity to complete a small and simple block quilt, approximately 1.1m x 1.1m. The workshop will start with half an hour of flicking through inspiring books to help to design your block. You will then be guided through all the stages of quiltmaking, from patchwork piecing, quilting layers together to neat binding and finishing.

We will also give you a short demonstration on hand quilting so that you have the choice of stitching into your quilt to give it a more tradtional and textured look when you get home. In one day you will create your own unique quilt and take away the skills and techniques that you can use over and over again.

Materials: You will need to bring a selection of fabrics for the quilt top, in total a surafce aread of 1.1m x 1.1m and one piece measuring 1.1m for the back of the quilt.  

Quilt wadding and threads are included, also lunch and refreshments are provided.

Booking the class entitles you to a 10% discount in the Ray Stitch shop where the staff will be very happy to help and advise.
