One Block Wonder with Sandi, $65 for 2 sessions

One Block Wonder

One Block Wonder quilts are an intriguing (and addictive) way to get spectacular kaleidoscope patterns from a single fabric.  In the 1st class,  you will learn how to line up the 6 repeats of your choice of fabric, cut the 6 identical triangles that will form each kaleidoscope  hexagon in your quilt, arrange the triangles and sewing instructions. In the 2nd class, you will learn how to arrange the quilt top, sew the rows, and finish the sides.

If you need help picking out fabric, Linda (or others) at The Nimble Thimble can get out the handy One Block Wonder mirror and help you visualize the beautiful kaleidoscope patterns.


Fee:
$65 total (includes both days)

Bring:
Sewing machine (don't forget power cord and foot pedal)
Flower pins
6 repeats of fabric (or 6 panels)
rotary cutter
24" ruler with 60 degree lines
(optional) One Block Wonder book
