Learn to make a simple patchwork quilt while surrounded by the natural beauty of Nesoddparken!
Projects will be scaled to experience. Beginner sewists will sew larger blocks into a baby sized quilt. More experienced sewists may choose to cut smaller blocks or create larger quilts. The pattern can be made in a variety of sizes so everyone will leave with a finished quilt, either lap size (48" x 60") or baby (36" x 36").
This full day class covers the basics of quilting:
planning a quilt project
cutting fabrics accurately
