Availability: In stock

This sampler quilt is made from interesting and varied 12" patchwork blocks, uses rotary cutting techniques and fusible web applique. The design includes a number of “Y” seams and lots of points, so make sure you have had your Weetabix before each class! The techniques used and skill level required make this an ideal class for those that have already made a beginner’s sampler quilt and are looking to expand their skills.

This quilt measures approx. 46" x 59", a good size for a single bed. It can be made smaller or larger if preferred by changing the number of blocks made and the size of the borders. We will be using the quilt as you go technique to put the blocks together.

The classes for this quilt are held fortnightly allowing time for homework in between. Due to the skill level required it relies on good attendance and knowledge gained from a previous sampler course or courses.
