This class is for the Boxed up Quilt which appeared in the April issue of the Homespun magazine. It is a very elegant quilt when made from Japanese fabric and can be pretty, bright or soft depending on the fabric choices you make.
The quilt was named after the way you close the top of a cardboard box without tape. Have you ever done this? You tuck each flap under the other so they ‘swirl’ and don’t flip open.
The magazine version is a single bed or couch throw size, however, Sharon can show you see ways to customise or re-size the quilt to suit your bed, stash or available fabric. The original quilt is made from three inch strips of Japanese fabric but can easily be adapted for Jelly Roll sided strips.
In class you will earn to make the seemingly tricky ‘partially seamed’ blocks that seem to swirl around the centre of the block. Like many patchwork techniques they appear tricky until you are shown how. Make a few to learn the technique or make the whole quilt. In class, Sharon can help you choose fabrics from your stash if you’d like a scrappy version or visit the store before hand and collect a Japanese fabric Boxed Up Kit or pick up a Jelly Roll.
The class is taken by Shop Owner Sharon Thomson who loves to see people learn new things and discover new skills.
