Fast, Fun, Waste-free Quilting: Take Nine
Create fast, fun, waste-free quilts with this video workshop by Valerie Nesbitt and justhands-on.tv – as an ebook!
Take Nine (see below) is a simple quilt, perfect for beginners as an introduction to rotary cutting and ¼ in seam piecing on the machine. It is a lovely design to use up those bundles of fabrics you couldn’t resist at the show or quilt shop.
You need exactly 9 fat quarters of fabric, which will make 9 blocks. Then you can decide on your setting and border. The pattern comes in two different sizes of block, but the overall design remains the same. Valerie gives you some alternative ideas for borders: Piano Keys and/or the use of flat piping.
Don’t worry too much about the fabrics for this pattern. If your 9 fat quarters look lovely together, they will be great in the quilt. And you can use fat quarters from metres (as in Europe) or fat quarters from yards (as in the USA) – either is fine. The sewing is easy. Valerie also guides you through layer cutting with the rotary cutter, designed to cut lots of pieces accurately and quickly.
