**CLASS** Thistles, Cogs and Caterpillar Wheels with Jenny Haynes of Papper, Sax, Sten - 1st March


Thistles, Cogs and Caterpillar Wheels with Jenny Haynes
When: Sunday 1st March 10am - 5pm
Ability: Basic knowledge of sewing on a machine needed

In this class you will make the classic New York Beauty block with a twist. Jenny created this block for her Modern Times Quilt (that won an award at Quilt Con 2019). You will build and design your own Thistles or Cogs to make a bouquet or clockwork creature (or what ever your heart desires).

Learning Objectives:

Learn how the different blocks are designed and put together, this way the different parts can be shifted and moved to change the look of the block.

We will sew no-pin machine-pieced curves in three sizes plus FPP using Freezer paper. The curves are sewn using no pins, glue or tape.

You will get to play with Jenny's Drunkard’s Path Template, a tool that makes precise blocks that are easy to piece together.

The class will also cover all the stages of Foundation Paper Piecing using Freezer Paper, how to prep the paper, what stitch length to use, how to best put the block together and more.

You will leave with the confidence, knowledge and freedom to design your own version of the Modern Times Quilt

In class you get to play with Jenny’s Quilting Templates and get a 10% discount on all templates if you decide you ‘need’ your own set.

Requirements for the class:
Fabric requirements will be sent to you after booking.

Sewing machines provided as well as tea/coffee and biscuits
