Description

Quilt-a-long: Purl Soho’s Modular Block Quilt (Basic sewing skills required)
Date: Date: April 18 - May 16, 2018 (Wednesdays, 5 weeks)
Time: 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Instructor: Tamsin Sloots
Fee: $75 plus HST (Members) | Fee: $86 plus HST (Non Members)

Learn the basics of quilt construction and piecing by making Purl Soho’s Modular Block Quilt. Each week, we will walk through the construction of the Modular Block Quilt together, learning how to use a rotary cutter and self healing mat to cut fabrics quickly down to size, some basics of piecing a quilt top on a sewing machine (such as how to make half-square triangles) and how to layer, baste and top stitch your quilt together.

There will be demonstrations on different types of both hand and machine quilting, and each participant will leave the class with a finished throw quilt of their very own!

Materials are not included. A list of fabrics and required materials will be sent out upon registration. Check out the pattern for the Modular Block Quilt by visiting:
