Swoosh! (Twice-cut Drunkard’s Path)- an online group workshop – August 18th (get ready) and September 28th (main workshop)


This is a live online course consisting of a one-hour ‘Get Ready!’ session to discuss the pattern, colour, templates and what prep you can do, followed a few weeks later by a four-hour group session via Zoom. The main workshop consists of two one-hour demo’s by me, each followed by solo sewing and questions by you. Both the ‘Get Ready!’ session and the workshop will be recorded for you to watch again (or at a later date if you can’t make the live sessions).

Learning objectives:

In this twice-cut Drunkard’s Path class you’ll learn to sew no-pin curves using my Complete and Long Oval Drunkard’s Path templates. We sew curved blocks using my no-pin curves technique, cut them up and sewn back together to create a graphic and modern block with lots of movement. Make one Swosh block, either 15” or 30”,  or get started on your Swosh quilt.

This is a block-based class and it comes with a block pattern but not a full quilt pattern.


•PDF paper templates

•PDF Swosh block pattern (two block sizes, 15” and 30”)

Suitable for confident 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.
