Saturday, April 20th, 10am-5pm
In this techniques class we will be exploring the Twice-cut drunkard’s Path in combination with multiple arches to create blocks with a checkerboard effect.
I will show you how, with the help of my custom templates, to cut and sew the arches (or Multiple Drunkard’s Path blocks), cut again and assemble into a Dazzling Roundel block.
The paper version of the templates used in class is included but, if you decide only the Acrylic templates will suffice, you’ll receive a 10% class discount* code upon booking the class. The Acrylic templates are highly recommended for ease and accuracy, especially if you are a stickler for precision.

You will have a choice of three blocks, three different levels.
Beginner friendly (basic quilt-making and sewing machine skills needed) –
Double Drunkard’s Path, 7″ or 14″ finished block
Intermediate/Confident Beginner – Triple Drunkards Path, 14″ finished block
Advanced – Multiple Drunkard’s path – 10 1/2″ finished block
The three different level blocks makes this class suitable for beginners to advanced sewists. A basic quilting knowledge (how to use a rotary cutter and ruler and to sew using an accurate seam allowance e.t.c.) is assumed but no previous curved-piecing skills are needed.
