Patchwork Block

Fancy making a handmade gift for a loved one or friend?

A patchwork block is simply a small section of the whole top; usually square and made up of small pieces of fabric sewn together. Numerous, identical blocks are made and then sewn together to form the geometric pattern.

For this project we will be creating a cushion cover measuring 20 x 20” (50 x 50 cm).

Materials required for this course:

For all quilting courses, students are to provide their own sewing materials and resources. Please see this link for the suggested items in no special order.

It’s always best to learn on your own sewing machine.  Please bring your sewing machine including the sewing machine manual, pedal and power cord.

Should you not have a sewing machine, then we do have machines available for your use. 

  • Cushion filler / insert.
  • Backing Fabric.
  • Collared Shirt with buttons.
  • Top Fabric.
  • Previous school uniform, scraps, squares or strips of fabric made up of (gym kit, collared shirt, skirt, trousers, socks, scarf, Friends association T-shirt, neck-tie, etc).
  • Plain white or cream backing fabric.
  • 1 collared button shirt for the backing fabric.

This course will run over four weeks, made up of four, 3 hour sessions.

We will break about half way through each 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!
