Log Cabin Block Party with PMQG!

Make a beautiful log cabin block in your favorite colors and finish it as a throw pillow with a sleek invisible zipper that elevates your handmade patchwork to the next level. In this 4-hour class, you’ll get the chance to try different piecing methods for building log cabin blocks, with lots of layout options, from traditional sunshine and shadow color play to striking, modern square-within-a-square designs. Once you choose your favorite design, you’ll piece, baste, and quilt it, then learn the technique to insert an invisible zipper so painlessly that you’ll transform every spare UFO block and square of fabric in your sewing room into stylish and reversible throw pillows! I’m bringing lots of my favorite fabric scraps and strips for mixing into your blocks, and a rainbow of perle cotton for hand-quilting and stitching, too! Note: this class includes a signed copy of my book Sew + Quilt, but if you already have a purchased or library copy to bring to class, it’s $25 off the workshop fee. Register here in the PMQG shop!
