The Perkiomen Valley quilt design is named for the Perkiomen Creek that flows diagonally through Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. This is an early documented pattern from the Germans who settled in this area.
The design is made of nine-patch blocks split by a diagonal, thus creating a dark and light color scheme. It's the way these blocks are put together that makes the Perkiomen Valley quilt design, which is said to represent the hills and valleys. Typically a scrap quilt, the layout always results in a square, 10 blocks across and 10 blocks down.
Note: This class will be held on the second floor of The Old Country Store.
