Are you ready for the second class in Discount Fabric Warehouse’s 3-day/3-quilt series? Join us for the 20 Asian Blocks Plus Quilt Class!
This amazing and beautiful quilt is the creation of Viv Smith, Quilt Designer for Willow Brook Quilts. Viv will be on hand to lead you through piecing together a quilt of your very own!
While this quilt looks complicated and difficult, it’s actually deceptively simple! The base of the quilt is essentially twenty 8 1/2″ blocks, set four across and five down. The fun is choosing where to put the 8 1/2″ square ruler to allow a flower or a bird to fall or grow out of the block! This is where your creativity and individuality comes shining through!
After the quilt top is pieced, we simply fuse this extra piece in place and then raw edge machine stitch it in place when we quilt!
Sound complicated? Don’t worry, Viv will take you step-by-step through the making of this project! You’ll have fun and create an amazing work of art at the same time!
What do you need to create this quilt? First thing you’ll need is the pattern. It can be purchased at Discount Fabric Warehouse – Hilo. The supply list for the quilt is printed on the back of the pattern and you’ll need all of the supplies included on there as well as any basic sewing notions that you would like to bring for your own use. We also ask you to bring a packed lunch as it is a fairly long class. And, finally, if you’d like to practice the machine applique in class, please bring an open toe free motion foot.
