Saturday, October 8th, 10:00am - 2:30pm
Pre-Requisite: Quilter’s Lumberyard Program Intro and Quilt Gallery and the Construction Zone Workshop are recommended.
The classic, easy-to-piece, multi-sized Hour Glass block combines perfectly with other Quilter’s Lumberyard ® blocks to create eye-popping quilts that are uniquely yours. Hour glasses and curves, hour glasses and dugouts, hour glasses and partial seams – big hour glasses, little hour glasses, hour glasses with stripes, and even more. The Quilter’s Lumberyard® will help you creatively explore the many visually exciting layouts this traditional hourglass block provides. In this class you will: - cut 2 ½” and 4 ½” quarter square triangles from “raw lumber” strips with the EZ Companion Angle template and sew finished 4” and 8” finished hour glass blocks from these triangles. - learn pressing and squaring techniques for hourglass blocks. - sketch a wide variety of basic and combination block options from samples provided. - create a 26” x 18” wall hanging or a 40” x 60” quilt demonstrating the hour glass technique. NOTE: Supply list will be emailed on or before August 1, 2022
