Win a place in Katy’s Modern Quilting Sampler class!

We’re giving away a spot in Katy Jones‘ fabulous Modern Quilting Sampler class over on the London Modern Quilt Guild blog! To win you have to comment on this post by 6pm tomorrow so scoot over there quick or you’ll miss your chance! The class will be held over two days – 10am-4pm on Saturday18th and 25th May at our shop in West Hampstead.

Katy’s class is an introduction to the world of modern quilting using the half square triangle piecing technique! Half square triangles are one of the most important building blocks of patchwork – and the variations of blocks you can create using them are endless.

Day one will be cutting fabrics and assembling the half square triangles; you will learn how to piece accurately and trim effectively. Once all the units are pieced you can play around with layouts, creating six blocks – that part is the fun bit, like colouring in or playing with shapes in nursery school! Here are some of the blocks you will learn to create:

Day two is creating a quilt top – choosing a setting and a layout. Katy will teach you how to plan your quilt top and how to make the most of your blocks to create an individual and striking modern sampler. You’ll leave with a gorgeous finished quilt top and the skills you need to complete your quilt at home.

If you don’t want to risk it you can reserve a place in the class here!
