About the Quilt -
Take a look at the included photos. It looks more like a traditional quilt than past HoopSister offerings. The Diamond Skill Builder Shop Exclusive (i.e., can only be purchased from a shop; not on-line from HoopSisters,) is very versatile! Each block builds a skill to be applied to the next block. Embroidery machine required. Basic piecing in the hoop, as well as piecing skills on a sewing machine. Quilters will love to learn how to apply piecing skills to embroidery and embroiders will love learning some piecing skills to add to their embroidery! This is a Win Win!
The “blocks” are 60° Diamonds that can be laid out in either a Star formation, or a strip quilt formation.
The Diamond shaped blocks come in two sizes to fit either a 6” x 8” (150mm x 200mm) hoop, or a 9” x 11¾” (230mm x 300mm) hoop.
The back can be completed using the HoopSisters traditional sashing method, OR a one piece back attached using a sewing machine with walking foot, or even a long arm.
Finished quilt sizes:
Large Diamond Layout - 47”w X 54”h
Small Diamond Layout - 28”w X 32”h
Large Strip Quilt Layout - 54½”w X 67½”h
Small Strip Quilt Layout - 32½”w X 40”h
If you want to make a larger quilt, borders can be added either by making more blocks or by creating border strips of fabric, which can also be quilted in the hoop.
About the Class
We all work a different paces, so we'll do a non-traditional kind of class. A first class will be scheduled in-store with optional ZOOM for those who can't make it to the store. In this class we will go over general information about making the quilt and you will get your designs and any other materials being offered. I will create a private Facebook Group just for us where we can exchange information, ask questions, post photos as we go along. I will make and post 'sew-along' videos for each block and for some other aspects of the quilt making process. I will notify you when the videos are posted and you can watch them at your convenience. If you need some hands-on help, we can schedule a few in-store sessions.
All of this for $139.
Class is not scheduled yet but will be soon. Start date will be in January, 2022. More information will be available soon, so stay tuned. If you'd like to be notified when more information is available, send an email to Susan at email@example.com. Be sure to include your name and email.
