About the Class

Adopt a keen eye for colour as you make a modern, minimally designed quilt, improv style. It’s a no-fuss, no-waste style of patchwork that uses bands of scrap fabric in a clean, geometric layout without any measurements.



  1. Sewing machine & matching thread.

  2. Rotary cutter, Quilting ruler, Cutting mat.

  3. Pins, Scissors, Iron, Ironing board.

  4. Batting and fabric for backing & binding.

  5. Needle and thread for hand sewing.


  1. Mood board - put together a colour palette or find an image/photograph with colours that you love and are pleasing to the eye. This palette will be your guide to putting fabrics together in interesting ways.

  2. Cloth scraps/fabrics - in the same colourway as your palette in cotton/ silk/ linen. Since colour will be a guiding factor in the design of your mini-quilt, avoid large, bold prints and motifs. Solids will work well for our purpose.
