We use a simplified patchwork technique to introduce students to the foundations of all patchwork.  Blocks are the cornerstone of all patchwork as they are created using single shapes sewn together to form a recurring pattern. Students will learn two blocks in their course.

These block patterns can be replicated to make bigger projects.

What you will learn:

  • How to coordinate fabric
  • How to cut out and layout fabric
  • How to assemble blocks
  • How to use wadding
  • How to edge with bias binding

In this class, students will complete at least one mug rug using a  unique and simple block pattern.  A second block will also be started in the class.  Students need to be able to use a sewing machine for this class.
