Christmas Throughout the Year- Block of the Month – Day 1
September 24, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm$35
We are wanting to gauge interest in this class, so we don’t have a start date just yet. Ignore the start date listed. Let us know if you are interested in doing this class so that we can add you to the list!
Christmas Throughout the Year is a block of the month quilt. The techniques are piecing and traditional appliqué. This is not an embroidery machine class, you will be doing this with a regular sewing machine. Each month, you will receive a pattern and a kit. You will need to bring your sewing machine, a quarter inch foot for piecing, and an open toe foot for applique.
At sign-up, you will just have to pay the $35 kit fee. The kit includes all the fabric that you will need. Then the fee is only $20 per class, which there will be 12. In class we will learn how to trace the appliqué and then you will iron the applique pieces you have traced onto fabric; assemble the quilt block and iron the applique pieces onto it.
I appliqued my blocks using all black thread. If you prefer, you can bring an assortment of colored thread to use, or you can take your block home to do the applique.
Other supplies you will need –
fusible web (Heat n Bond Lite, Wonder Under – whatever you prefer)
white, gray or cream colored thread for piecing
applique sheet (if you have one)
any other basic sewing supplies
