Mystery 9-Patch Sample Lap Quilt


with Judy Boardman

Calendar Next available session starts Oct 5, 2022 at 6 pm

Learn how to cut prisms, clip squares, parallelograms, trapezoids, kite and 45 degree diamonds. We will also review triangles, half-square triangles, and quarter-square triangles.

The 9th square will incorporate 2 patterns in one square.

You can use the same color scheme throughout the quilt, or you can make each square a different color scheme, with the background color incorporated in each square, then sash in one color.

We will be doing 2 squares per class for the first 4 weeks. During the 5th week, we will do the 2 squares in one, and during the 6th week we will sew the squares together and apply borders if time allows.
