CLASS DATE: Saturday July 16, 11am-2pm
LOCATION: Oil and Cotton
INSTRUCTOR: Aaron Sanders Head
In this workshop, participants will learn to make a folded Log Cabin Quilt Block, or a Manx Quilt Block. The quilt block is a distinctive take on a log cabin block, utilizing a series of unique but easy measurements based on the hand of the maker, making each block unique to the person who created it. Traditionally the fabric was torn, not cut. A simple folding technique gives this block a gorgeous, textural, heavy finish and stitches up quickly. Aaron will be demonstrating the traditional way of sewing this by hand, but stitchers will easily see how this can be done on a machine, if so desired, at home.
Manx refers to the name of the native Celtic people from the Isle of Man, an island located in the middle of the Irish Sea between England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. The earliest known example of Manx patchwork dates back to about 1820. The Manx quilt block is named after the Isle of Man where it originates. With its wonderful history and beautiful technique, this class is perfect for seasoned stitchers, as well as those taking their first steps into the world of hand quilting.
