Quilt Block Club 2024 will gather every third Saturday at Ideaworks, a space buzzing with creativity.

Our focus for the year is the classic Sawtooth Star block, but with a twist – we're filling the centers with various traditional American block patterns.

The goal is to take these familiar "sampler" blocks to new and modern places, playing with colors and prints to make them uniquely yours.

By December you'll have a collection of blocks that you can use to make a quilt, throw pillow covers, individual framed art, appliques on jacket backs or dish towels... the choice is yours! The aim is to instill the confidence to keep experimenting and creating beyond the club.

(Unable to commit to the whole series? Email janelleo@fresnoideaworks.org about joining in an individual session).

Important Stuff:

  • All materials are provided, but if you have specific quilting fabrics you'd love to work with, bring them along!
  • Quilt Block Club is suitable for anyone familiar with simple straight stitching on a domestic sewing machine. It's a welcoming space for both beginners and seasoned quilters.
  • For our younger participants, minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for a shared creative experience.

Safety First:

  • We're serious about safety. Closed-toed shoes are a must in all areas of the facility.
  • Avoid dangling jewelry, lanyards, and the like around machinery.
  • Keep hoodie and apron ties, long hair, and long beards securely away from the machines.
  • Dates are subject to change. We'll do our best to ensure that everyone has a chance to make every block.

Get ready to stitch, share, and create lasting memories with fellow quilting enthusiasts. Quilt Block Club 2024 is not just about crafting beautiful pieces; it's about embracing the joy of quilting in a welcoming and inspiring community. See you on the third Saturday!
