SATURDAY 13th October 2018 NINE PATCH SCRAMBLE FUN DAY WITH SUSAN DRUMMOND is now held in Cumberland Day Centre, Cumberland Street, Dumfries DG1 2JX. You park your car in Briooms car park,

This day starts 10 am and carries on to 3 pm.  

Please bring the following to the class:

  • Your ready prepared 9 patch blocks
  • Rotary cutter and cutting mat
  • Squaring up ruler - optional
  • cutting rulers
  • sewing machine with all necessary cables and foot control
  • an extensin cable if you have one
  • Thread to match your fabric. 
  • Usual sewing things ie scissors, pins, machine needles
  • a small grocery shopping bag or gif bag. Must not be able to see through it.
  • BRING YOUR OWN LUNCH coffee and tea will be provided
  • irons will be provided by Solway.



Make a basic nine patch block made up of 4.5" squares. Keeping the centre square in a plain or background fabric will give your finished quilt continuity.

I made my quilt out of scrap fabrics but you can make your 9 patches larger if you want. A charm pack of 5" squares would work well. Cut your centre squares 5" if using charm pack.

Make at least nine 9 pach blocks (arranged in a 3x3 grid) or up to 20. This is the maximum probably to cope with on the day and will give you a quilt 4 blocks wide by 5 down.

You can of course organise blocks 4x4 or a 3x4 grid if you wish.
