Winter Quilt Along

Looking for something cozy *and* social to do this winter? Join Julie for a virtual winter quilt-along – equal parts social sewing circle and guided class time! Sew at your own pace with friends, or use this project and instruction to fine-tune your piecing skills … or both! Week-by-week, we’ll sew this quilt top together, and use the opportunity to learn about accurately piecing and designing medallion quilts (a quilt created in rounds, with a central motif) and Julie will be on hand to help you take the framework of this design and make it your own! Replace elements, change layout, experiment with color placement, or simply sew the pattern as is – use this quilt-along in whatever way you want!

This class would be a great follow-up to The Basic Quilt class, to expand on the skills learned in that class, or a wonderful next-step quilt project for anyone refreshing or expanding their piecing skills. Or just a cozy winter project to dig into!

Quilt-along will run for six weeks, with a break over the holiday period (including over the week of Thanksgiving), and will include all sewing instructions and coloring sheets to help you plan your project! Completed quilt top will measure 60” square.

 

Pre-Requisites

Basic comfort level with patchwork techniques and terms, including sewing an accurate 1/4” seam. If you took The Basic Quilt class at Cut & Sew, you’re ready!

Supplies
Fabric requirements for quilt top (quilting cotton):
• Background = 3.5 yd
• Central Star = 1/4 yd
• Border 1 (triangles) = 1/2 yd
• Border 2 (geese) = 3/4 yd
• Border corners = 3 fabrics, 1/8 yd each
Note: this project is great for scrap / stash-busting (especially for the border corners!), and a great candidate to play with the color layout and make it your own. This is just one example of how to arrange colors in this design! If you want to use fewer fabrics, or have any questions about fabric requirements, let Julie know and she can help you work it out! Julie will send a coloring sheet ahead of the first session to help you plan, as well as some alternative layout ideas.

• Pilot Frixion Pen
• 6” or 6 1/2” x 24” quilting ruler
