Manx Patchwork


Manx Patchwork


The earliest known example of Manx patchwork is about 1820. The Manx quilt block is named after the Isle of Man where it originates. Manx is the name of the native Celtic people from the Isle of Man, an island located in the middle of the Irish Sea between England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

In this workshop, participants will learn to make a folded Log Cabin Quilt Block, or a Manx Quilt Block. The quilt block is a unique take on a log cabin block, utilizing a series of unique but easy measurements based on the hand of the maker, making each block unique to the person who created it. Traditionally the fabric was torn, not cut. A simple folding technique gives this block a gorgeous, textural, heavy finish and stitches up quickly.

An illustrated PDF covering all techniques will also be included.
