Intermediate Quilting: Dancing Nine Patch

Date: TBA - Fall 2015
Instructor: Sheila Ford
If you are interested in this class, please e-mail us at <annatempletoncentre@gmail.com>!

The "Dancing Nine Patch!" quilt pattern is a great way to use up scraps or strips left over from other projects. Or you can start afresh with new fabrics specifically purchased for this quilt.

The nine patch squares are bordered by strips only on two sides, the two touching sides where corner meets corner. When these larger blocks are sewn together the nine patches are off-set from each other by the addition of these two strips, making it seem as if the nine patches are moving or dancing. A lovely, lively quilt to work on in the fall evenings! And a great class to take with a friend.

Please note this class is restricted to eight participants to ensure adequate time with the instructor.

Fee: $150 (includes HST, supplies extra)

Price: $0.00
