Join us for a half-day workshop to learn the versatile “String Block” for quilting. 
String blocks are a great way to use up fabric scraps and can add texture and interest to a quilt design. They can be arranged in various layouts to create different visual effects, making them a versatile and fun quilting technique.
• Students must provide their own working sewing machine
• Approximately 2-4 yards of a repurposed light colored sheet or muslin fabric which will be cut up to serve as the base for your blocks
• An assortment of fabric strips/scraps and/or pieces that can be cut up or sewing into strips (woven, not knit fabric such as t-shirts)
• Thread for machine
• Scissors
• 45” Rotary cutter
• An acrylic ruler and/or any acrylic quilting block rulers you might have and like to use.
• Portable cutting matt
• Sewing pins
