This class is so much fun because you DO NOT sew blocks together! I LOVE this concept!

 

The featured pattern is “Magic 9-Patch” by Beverly Ingram of Quilter’s Dream. This quilt is made from strips to form the 9-patch blocks; then the blocks are assembled to make the quilt top. SO-O-O-O fast and easy, no cutting individual squares to make the blocks! This makes a great baby gift or several larger size options are included with the pattern for other gift ideas. Good time to start your Christmas gifts with this project.

 

During the class there will be hints to make your quilt making easier.

 

Required Pattern:Magic 9-Patch by Beverly Ingram of Quilter’s Dream

 

Note: This is a great beginner quilt. Quilting basics is preferred but not required for this class.

 

Fabric Requirements: See pattern for fabric requirements per your size choice.

 

            Baby Magic – requires only 6 fat quarters for the center of the top before borders, etc.

            Throw Magic – requires only 6 cuts 3/8 yard each for the center of the top before borders, etc.

            Other fabrics for borders, binding, and backing as shown per pattern as well as additional sizes.

 

Finished quilt size is approximately 38 X 39 for Baby Magic or 53 x 63 for the throw.

 

Robyn has so-o-o many wonderful baby fabrics or she can also help you pick fabrics.

 

Class preparation: Fabrics should ALL be pressed and it is a good idea to spray with sizing when pressing. Cutting strips before class is not required but may be done so you can get to sewing sooner.

BEFORE CUTTING PLEASE NOTE:

Baby size – cut with salvage closest to you, cut 4 strips each 4” wide X 21” long from each of the 6 fabrics.

Throw size – cut 3 strips each 4” wide X WOF” from each of the 6 fabrics.

 

DO NOT, repeat DO NOT start to sew before class. Do not cut strips any further.
