Quilt in a Day – Charm Squares with Leonie Fraser
Times: 9.00am setup for a 9.30am start, finishing at 3.00pm
Focus: Machine Pieced Patchwork using rotary cutters and rulers, and
sewing techniques on your machine. This course can be completed
without hand sewing or templates.
Charm square packs offer the chance to make a quilt with a scrappy feel of having lots of different patterns without the need to worry about coordinating colours as the designer has done that for you – all the squares in a charm pack will definitely go together! One charm pack will make a throw or lap sized quilt, while two charm packs will make a full queen sized bed quilt (but will take a bit more than a day to complete!). This pattern will make an attractive quilt to gift – or keep for yourself!
