Course details

Brief Description:

This course is aimed at those who are more experienced at patchwork and quilting and who would like to extend their
repertoire with more complex blocks.

Previous Experience and Knowledge Needed?

This course is anyone who has attended the tutor’s courses in previous years so prior skills are expected. This is the second term of this year; in the first term the following skills were covered:
• The bow tie block
• Hunter Star block
• French braid block
• Making a ‘mug rug’ using foundation paper piecing

Learning Outcomes:

The 15 week course (over 2 terms) will be organised in the following way:
Term 2
• Using a die cutting machine
• Equilateral triangles
• ‘Stitch and flip’ blocks
Term 3
• Stained glass appliqué patchwork or by mutual agreement

Extra costs on the course for example text book, materials or equipment:

1. Patchwork weight fabric will be required but advice will be available on what to purchase. Requirements emailed out. See note below,
2. Your own sewing machine if you can bring one.

For the first session you will need to bring:

Your usual sewing and patchwork resources such as a rotary cutter and mat. For the coming year, you might like to consider making all the year’s blocks in the same or coordinating fabric. This could be yardage or sets of fat quarters.

On completion of this course, what might your next steps be?

Saturday classes are on offer for those who would like an extended time to learn and create. Speak to the tutor.
The Learn and Train office is able to give course information or search for alternative courses for you.

Tutor

Marion CurtisI have interests in many forms of textiles including weaving and bobbin lace. I taught art and design technology for over 30 years and more recently I have concentrated on my own design work and working to commission. I would describe myself as a ‘Modern Quilter’ where old designs are invigorated with contemporary fabrics. Opening my studio to the public every year through Cambridge Open Studios, I am an active member of Cambridge Quilters and I often give talks and run workshops. With my art and design background, I feel very confident that I can draw out the ‘designer’ in you!
