The Pine Cone quilt also called a Pine Burr Quilt was a traditional southern African American quilt pattern that became popular in the 20th century. The “Pinecone Patchwork” derives its name from the overlapping design seen from the bottom of a longleaf pinecone. The pattern consists of a circular pattern of triangular fabric pointed towards the center. The finished quilts are very heavy and have very colorful designs.

In this three-part class, students will learn basic elements of design and color, practice hand sewing, and develop a deeper appreciation for hand sewn full-size quilts. The goal is to complete a 24×24 inch square using the folding fabric method making little triangles which will form a Pine Cone quilt sampler, seat covering, pillow top, or wall hanging. The class includes thread, base fabric, and needles.

Students are asked to bring scissors and 3 yards of assorted fabric.
