Quilt Blazer

Live, in-person at the Millwood Firehouse on 100 Millwood Road in Millwood, NY 10546

Join us for a day of creativity, music, and fun at our Quilt Blazer workshop with the talented Sandra Lee! Grab your favorite quilt, UFO, quilt top, or pieced yardage and Sandra Lee will guide you through the step-by-step process of creating a one-of-a-kind quilt blazer that reflects your personal style and flair.  Whether you’re a seasoned quilter or a beginner looking for something new, this workshop is perfect for anyone who loves fashion and quilting. The possibilities are limitless! And with Sandra Lee’s guidance, creative ideas, and tips and tricks, your vision will be brought to life.

Key concepts of the workshop:

  1. Sewing a blazer
  2. Working with quilted fabrics, cotton, denim, etc.
  3. Sewing binding
  4. How to begin and end a project using a paper pattern
  5. Finding the perfect size

What you need to bring to class:

  • Fabric requirements as listed on the back of the pattern. As long as students have the yardage recommended on the pattern, (for example, size XL requires 2 ¾ yard x 45” wide or 1⅞ yard x 60” wide), students can use a finished quilt, pieced yardage, or a UFO quilt.
  • Sewing machine
  • Fabric scissors
  • Pins or Wonder Clips
  • Thread to match your fabric
  • Sewing machine
  • Measuring tape
  • Seam ripper
  • Rotary cutter
  • Ruler
  • Mat

There have been a few questions about the Quilt Blazer workshop.

Where do I get the pattern?  As a convenience to workshop participants NSQG purchased twenty patterns–ten (4-6, 8-10, 12-14) and ten (16-18, 20-22, 24-26).  These patterns are up for grabs on a first come, first serve basis. When you officially register, you’ll be asked to choose your desired size pattern and you can pick it up at the June Salad Luncheon. But hurry, there’s a limited supply of free patterns, so make sure to register for the workshop and reserve your pattern ASAP.

Can we jump ahead and cut out pattern pieces before the workshop?  NO!  Sandra has modified the pattern for this workshop so she doesn’t want you to cut anything ahead of time.

Can we bring pieces of quilts (or UFOs or pieced yardage) to match the pattern?  No!

Can we bring a different pattern? Yes, as long as the pattern is without darts and has a separate pattern piece(s) for the front and the back of the jacket. A picture of the pattern pieces for you to reference.

Will Sandra be showing us how to fit the pattern and possibly make it shorter if it would be more flattering? Yes, at the beginning of class, Sandra will discuss adjusting the pattern. (Another reason not to cut the pattern pieces ahead of time).
