Block A Month
Time & Location
About The Event
If you can sew and want to progress to quilting then this is a great choice. Each month you will learn a new block and your Stars & Roses Sampler Quilt will build up over the year. These smaller quilt blocks of fabric will be made in a variety of patterns which will then sewn together to form the top of the whole quilt which measures approx. 185cm x 185cm (72" x 72"). There will be a 3 hour workshop each month, which will run on a Wednesday morning and will be repeated on the following Saturday for those who cannot attend midweek, or if that suits you better. You will be introduced to techniques such as cutting and sewing blocks, putting blocks together, sandwiching and binding etc.
