Introduction to Quilting – Quilting Techniques Workshop – Diagonal Strip Quilting

23 January 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


The quilting technique workshops are perfect for those wanting to learn the basics of the different essential quilting techniques covered over separate sessions. (please see course description here)

The sessions will run over separate weeks covering the different techniques and you can join for just the sessions you want to learn.

The different techniques are: Paper Piecing, Confetti Quilting, Log Cabin, Diagonal Strip Quilting, Applique Design and Quilt-as-you-go.

Each technique is quick, easy and great for using up your stash or scrap fabric. You may decide to use the design as an individual piece for a scattered cushion or tote bag. Alternatively, you may decide to follow a colour scheme and use these pieces to create a large quilt repeating all or some of the designs.

During the session you will learn to create one block using the specified technique coving all the skills required. This will enable you to make more blocks in your own time which you can piece together to create a large quilt should you wish.

Written instructions, requirements and measurements will be provided.

This session is the:
Diagonal Strip Quilting.
This diagonal strip quilt technique is perfect for jelly rolls, and is an easy and simple way to piece together diagonal blocks.

I have sewing machines available for use during the session, but if you do have your own sewing machine, I would recommend you bring it along so that you can become more and more confident in using your machines features.

We will break about half way through the session for refreshments, as sewing is thirsty work for mind and body therefore it’s only natural that there will be plenty of tea, coffee and cake to keep us going!

Materials required for Session: 20 strips of 2.5 inch wide fabric in a variety of colours. Jelly roll strips are perfect for this technique.
A long straight ruler; cutting mat; and rotary cutter.

Class Length: One, 3 hour session

Max in a class: 5

Price: £45
