Patchwork and Quilting at Henfield Hall Sept – Dec
Falling Charms Quilt – intermediate quilters
This medium size quilt is for those who have had some experience of patchwork and quilting. The class will teach you to: -
o Use a pre – cut pack of fabric
o Sew an accurate seam allowance of ¼ inch
o Cut and piecing blocks using a rotary cutter, ruler and mat
o Quilt a large quilt
o Add a border, a decorative insert and a binding to the quilt
The class will run for 8 weeks which will give you enough time to complete the project. The quilt measures about 50 inches square and is quilted as a whole quilt.
A sewing machine with a ¼ inch foot and a walking foot – this quilt cannot be hand sewn
1 x charm packs that are from the same range
1 metre of plain or lightly patterned fabric for the background fabric
0. 5m for the insert next to the border
1 metre of border fabric
3 metres of backing fabric – this includes the final binding fabric.

Sewing thread to blend with your chosen fabrics – 100% cotton and a 50-weight thread as it’s for piecing
A thread to quilt your quilt – this can be the same as your sewing thread or a contrast colour. It’s best to buy this once you have a quilt.

The quilt will finish at approximately 55 inches wide by 60 inches long.
I made my quilt with a patterned charm pack and a cream background. I am making this quilt with the permission of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
