Rosie Chan teaches in Bangkok

Hobby Club, 4th Floor Siam Paragon, sometimes has quilt classes.
Rosie Chan taught a quilting class here in Bangkok on Monday October 27, 2008 at Siam Paragon’s Passage Zone. If you are interested in sewing and crafts, the Passage Zone is located on the 4th floor of Paragon. You can go there to buy supplies and learn about knitting, sewing and other crafts. The class here was sponsored by Bernina. There were nine students and we each had a sewing machine, either our own or one supplied by Bernina. Rosie taught us to make four quilt blocks. She is a great teacher. I highly recommend her classes. The Bernina shop/quilt shop where Rosie works is located in Singapore:

First we learned to piece curves in a new way. We used folded fabric pieces which we sewed into the seam line of a pieced unit or block. Then we turned the bias edge of the folded square back and stitched it down. A curve appears! There is a book with patterns like this called Peeled-back Patchwork Curves Without Piecing

And then on to a One Square Cathedral Window block. Cut a square of fabric 8 inches by 8 inches. This will fold down to a smaller square measuring 4 1/2 inches by 4 1/2 inches, which includes the seam allowances of 1/2 inch (not the usual quilters seam allowance of 1/4 inch). The finished size of the block is 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches.

The table runner pattern comes from Free Foldy Stuff.
