The evening class has been going really well throughout all the mayhem and everyone is now starting to look at ways of arranging their blocks and strips. This week we’ll be looking at some basics of machine quilting as well as making individual quilt plans, measurements and construction sequence.

Next month at Tittensor it’s Zippy Bags when we’re planning on converting all those zip-phobic folks into zip experts and making lots of small bags in the process (did we hear someone say “Useful gifts”?).
