Quilt Technique: Circles and Curves

1 x 3hr Session


Class Length: 3 hours
Number in Class: 6 
Entry Level: You will need to have completed one of our ‘Sewing Machine Basics’ courses or have similar experience with a machine. This means you must be able to thread the machine on your own, wind a bobbin, and go forwards and backwards with straight stitch.
Materials: Not Included: Students will need to bring fabric and thread from home or buy from the shop. Please see materials list.
Tutor: Jemma Dell

In this class you will learn two methods of using your machine to create quilt blocks incorporating circles and curves. Both methods are highly versatile and once mastered will allow you to create a myriad of different quilt tops. First you will learn how to use the machine to do a reverse appliqué circle. Then we will look at a method of making 'drunkards path' quarter circle blocks. There should be time to practise either or both of these blocks more than once. We will also look at some of the ways the blocks can be used in a larger quilt top.

Students are welcome to either bring their own machines (bring your manual too!) or use the Backstitch machines for free. We will be teaching using a 1/4 inch foot which the Backstitch machines are equipped with.

Materials List:
Quilting cotton: at least 4 fat quarters of different quilting cottons - plain or printed.
Thread suitable for piecing. We recommend Aurifil 50wt
If you would like to buy these items from the shop we are happy to help you choose although you may want to pop in before the day of the class as choosing fabric can take some time!!
