Small and Simple

Is the title of our workshop on Saturday. Sadly, following a spate of last minute cancellations (sudden realisation that it is half term?), the first word describes the size of the class. So – here is your opportunity to come along and try a C&B workshop tailored specifically for complete beginners as well as those who wish to update, practice or perfect their skills. We have planned a small quilt top – a really simple-to-piece block with loads of design possibilities to explore for those who wish – which will then provide you with the opportunity to play around with machine quilting, both with the walking foot and free-motion. We will follow this with an in-depth tutorial on binding and finishing your quilt.

Barbara made a small sample a few weeks ago – you may have seen the photo on the blog earlier –


and Chris made a larger version some years ago – which you probably haven’t seen before –

– they look very different but use the same block; the main difference is one of scale. Being so quick to make this design is ideal for anyone who makes Linus or other charity quilts and this Saturday would provide an ideal day to get away from the phone and family and use up those strips and squares. Why not give it a go? It promises to be a fun day. And we will as usual be providing plenty of biscuits and cake, all calorie-free as they’re away from home!
