VIRTUAL: Making A Folded Log-Cabin Quilt
Class Date: Sunday, June 7, 1-4pm
Registration Deadline: May 29
Location: Your home!
Instructor: Aaron Sanders Head
Participants will begin by learning about the Manx quilt technique, which consists of folding fabric strips and assembling them in a log cabin style, and the traditional method of "tying" a quilt instead of quilting. The finished blocks are textured, layered and effortlessly intricate. This quilting technique can be used on a machine for super fast piecing, or hand-stitched for a more meditative process. You are welcome to hand stitch or machine sew, your choice!
Students are also encouraged to bring additional textile swatches to incorporate. Good lighting is recommended so you can see your stitches!
