String Quilt Sew-a-Long! An Afternoon of Sewing Fun,,,, with Emma

OtherCome sit and sew with us! Make addictive string quilt blocks!  String quilts are named for the strips of fabric that are used to make a quilt - the "strings". The strings are sewn to a permanent foundation - we will supply muslin for this class. You can use another fabric for the foundation if you like, or a thinner material, and even prints, but choose something that won't show through the strings after the blocks are assembled. Bring your scraps, and we'll add some of ours, along with muslin for the foundation. It will be helpful if you cut your strips into  1", 1.5" and 2" strips, any length. Colors do not matter, the brighter the better. Also good to have your strips sorted into lights, darks, mediums. String quilt blocks are a cinch to make, and are great for the beginner. These easy quilts are assembled using a simple type of foundation piecing. You'll also hear the method referred to as string piecing and string quilting. String piecing is a free-form quilt making method, so you do not need to mark a pattern onto foundations. Instead, you'll simply position strips, sew a seam, flip the strip right side up, and then add another. It's super simple, but there are so many ways to string piece that the results are never boring. You will be well on your way to making your colorful quilt! In this class you will learn to sew together strips to make quilt blocks. Appropriate for adults, ages 14+. You may bring your own working sewing machine, or use one of ours. $38 per person includes use of machine and our scraps and muslin!
