As much as we love sewing dazzling BurdaStyle designs, there’s nothing quite like curling up underneath your very own handmade quilt! You don’t want to miss the exciting quilting workshop taught by quilter extraordinaire Mary Fons at The Sewing Studio New York!
If you’ve ever wanted to make a quilt, this class is for you. Primarily, we’ll focus on what comes first in any quilt: making the patchwork top (you will get some quilting instruction.) You’ll learn “the patchwork quartet” (cutting, sewing, pressing, and ripping); you’ll learn how to properly rotary cut fabric; you’ll get tons of pointers on fabric selection; you’ll construct blocks to either finish or get a beautiful, running start to your very first quilt. (You’ll get lots of quilt history, too, and tons of tips from the pros.) Come learn how to make patchwork — and probably change your life while you’re at it.
