Quilt as you go – class report

We’re unforgivably late posting the report on Saturday’s class but better late than never!  Everyone seemed to have a really good time and lots of creative opportunities were identified as we demonstrated some simple-but-effective piecing and quilting techniques.  We are expecting to see a lot of cushions, bags and small quilts at the next Show & Tell session!



Barbara had a hard time walking past the heap of blue strips above without reaching out a hand!









It doesn’t look too exciting, but the demonstration of joining together quilted blocks was very well received, and we suspect that this method will be well-used in the future!


Well done everyone – look forward to seeing what you make!

Quilt as you go

Another Tittensor Saturday class rolls into view!  This time we will be sharing the delights of quilting as you piece, and quilting small manageable sections and joining it all together.  Samples have been made, worksheets printed and our respective class boxes are sitting waiting to be filled with these and other essentials.

Just a reminder that you can keep up with us on our separate Instagram accounts – @chrisfranses and @barbarachainey.  We’re very taken with Instagram – it’s quick, easy and a lot of fun!  We’ve even persuaded Jane at our local shop The Corner Patch to venture onto Instagram as well and she can be found @thecornerpatch.
