Grade Beginners: This workshop is suitable for beginners, but you will need to have some previous experience of threading up a machine, sewing in a straight line and know how to use a rotary cutter.
Join us and Jen Kelson at the Make HQ Studio for this three part workshop. Learn the basic techniques of patchwork and quilting and construct a beautiful lap quilt. Our strip quilt, nicknamed the Stacked Book Quilt is a variation on an offset strip quilt. The simple construction technique means it is a fantastic first patchwork project but also a quick and fun contemporary quilt project for those with more experience. You will need to know how to use a sewing machine for this class.
During the class we will cover the following:
- Using a rotary cutter to cut your fabric strips
- Sewing your strips together using chain piecing
- How to layer your quilt 'sandwich'
- Quilting techniques
- Binding your quilt
Refreshments and all tuition included. We do have some equipment for you to use but before the class begins we will send you a pre-read which will include a list of everything you will need to bring with you.
Please bring along your sewing machine, if you don’t have one no problem we can provide one but please let firstname.lastname@example.org know in advance.
