Makower`s A Walk in the Park Quilt with Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 09-Aug-2019
Lynne Goldsworthy designed this quilt so that you can cut the panel up into small sections, which you then build by adding simple borders so that they match the size of your chain block.
In this video, Valerie Nesbitt guides you through how to create both the panel blocks and the chain blocks, adding in a couple of helpful tips to keep you straight!
Make sure that your panel blocks are made and measured before you trim the blocks to size as panel blocks need to be the same size as your chain blocks.
If you want to make a smaller quilt, you could make a 9 block quilt. This would mean 4 patch blocks and 5 chains (or the other way round) plus simple borders.
If you would like to purchase this range and the panel you could try our friends at Creative Quilting.
