The GillyMac Sparkle Quilt was the subject of the 2020 Spring Retreat. This class on Wednesday 15th July runs from 10 am – 5 pm and offers a day learning how make the two blocks in this amazing quilt via Zoom
The quilt can be made in three sizes – Cot (36″ x 48″), Snuggle – pictured – (60″ x 60″) and Double (60″ x 84″).
The quilt is made up of two blocks, which combine beautifully together. Each block has been designed so that, should you wish, the light and darker shades of a colour can be used to create a 3D effect. The blocks also look great with smaller prints.
The blocks are constructed using simple (super simple) foundation piecing at the corners and ‘normal’ piecing for the rest of the block. You will learn how to make half rectangle triangles and piece them precisely and then incorporate them accurately into the block. Building this quilt will help you consolidate many of the basics of patchwork and improve your accuracy in piecing.
The participants will be given exclusive access to a set of videos covering how I have quilted the Sparkle Quilt. The quilting video is a separate quilt-a-long each participant can view and use when they are ready. The video can be used at any time in the future and can be watched endless times.
