Hoopsister's Skill Builder

 The Diamond Skill Builder Shop Exclusive (i.e., can only be purchased from a shop; not on-line from HoopSisters,) is very versatile! Each block builds a skill to be applied to the next block. Embroidery machine required.  Basic piecing in the hoop, as well as piecing skills on a sewing machine. Quilters will love to learn how to apply piecing skills to embroidery and embroiders will love learning some piecing skills to add to their embroidery! 

The “blocks” are 60° Diamonds that can be laid out in either a Star formation, or a strip quilt formation.

The Diamond shaped blocks come in two sizes to fit either a 6” x 8” (150mm x 200mm) hoop, or a 9” x 11¾” (230mm x 300mm) hoop.


The back can be completed using the HoopSisters traditional sashing method, OR a one piece back attached using a sewing machine with walking foot, or even a long arm.

This class meets once in the shop to help with any questions and meets online with Hoopsisters EVERY Monday in January and once a month through August to help you through the process.
