Nine of Diamonds Quilt Top : starts Thursday June 6, 5:30-8:30pm for 4 sessions

$330.00 CAD

THE WORKROOM PARKDALE : This workshop is scheduled to take place in our new studio at 207 Cowan Avenue, Unit A. We can't wait to welcome you there!

It’s all in how you stack the deck in our Nine of Diamonds Quilt Top Workshop! You'll learn a clever way of shuffling your fabrics that will result in a unique assortment of speed-pieced Nine Patch blocks with no two alike. Blocks are set “on point” for a sparkling, dynamic layout. This pattern offers flexible sizing for your finished quilt- keep it modest if you’re a beginner or scale it up if you feel more confident.

This quilt top can be made as a small (baby), large throw (sample size), twin or queen.
The Nine of Diamonds sample features 36 Nine Patch blocks and a total finished size of 72″ square.

This is a four session class that meets each Thursday, June 6, 13, 20 & 27.

Prerequisite: We recommend our beginner sewing class, Sewing Machine Essentials or equivalent experience. Students should know how to thread a sewing machine to take this class.
