“Heritage” – Noun
Something to be passed down through the generations, sometimes a tradition, often land or property but of course in this era of sewing and craft why not create a family heirloom and make this gorgeous heritage quilt.
Add the date and name onto the back of the quilt to personalise your design, creating your own little piece of history.
The finished quilt will be 48” x 48” or if you want to increase the size add more borders.
This is a monthly workshop over 7 months and more suitable for the advanced/intermediate quilter or those that have covered the foundation of quilting and the basic techniques. Each month you will learn a new method to create a block or section and build the quilt as you progress.
On this Journey you will learn
- How to set up and use a fabric key
- Draw and use templates
- Folded fabric – the centre piece
- Braided blocks
- Add borders and cornerstones
- Hand turned applique
- How to build the quilt with different size blocks
The class will be held in the studio in Mytholmroyd or if you prefer to stay home join us via zoom on the Tuesday class .
If you are joining via zoom you will need access to a computer/Ipad or even a mobile phone. Each month click and follow the zoom invitation to watch the tutor do a full demonstration, each workshop is supported with a full pdf of written and pictorial instructions which are easy to follow. You can choose to sew along with the tutor on the day or wait and stitch at your leisure. In addition we also have a what’s app group for any questions or just that reassurance when you need it.
We have limited numbers in the studio with an individual dedicated workspace. The Quilt Cabin studio is a bright airy space located in the heart of West Yorkshire.
This quilt was designed by Susan our tutor and was inspired by our local history The Bronte sisters in Haworth. So come along and have a fun day join us on this monthly 4 hours workshop to create this charming quilt.
