Girls Shed, Quilting Workshops

BLOCK OF THE MONTH

Techniques covered will be:

  • Half and quarter square triangles
  • Geometric piecing and piecing order
  • Set in seams
  • Hand piecing
  • Curved piecing
  • Machine appliqué
  • Needle turn appliqué
  • Bias strips
  • English paper piecing
  • Foundation piecing

The techniques will start out being very simple and will progressively offer more challenge as your skills grow. So this is an excellent way to develop your skills and make a beautiful quilt at the same time.

The quilt is intended to be a scrappy quilt and as such fabric requirements will not be given. You should instead choose a theme for your colours such as brights, country colours, heritage colours, etc. I would also encourage the use of different backgrounds to contribute to the scrappy look. Specific requirements other than the usual "general sewing supplies" will be noted each month for the following month.

The finished size of the quilt is approximately 78 inches square.

The subscription price is $20 per month. Please subscribe by clicking the PayPal button below.
