Flashback Friday

Flashback to one of our most popular classes ever – Grow Your Own Quilt.  Frame quilts are one of our favourite formats as they are so adaptable and almost infinite in their variety – a perfect teaching base.  Here are our first two tops made as samples for the first edition of this class –

If we rummage through the archive vault at C&B Towers we may find a few action pictures taken in class…. this may take a while!

Flashback Friday

Flashback this week to our very popular Mystery class based on a local tiled porch floor – we have been asked so often for the pattern that it is now available over at our sister site Meadowside Designs.

Or you can head direct to the pattern page on our Payhip site – the pattern is available for £4 with full colour step-by-step diagrams and a photo of the original doorstep we took the pattern from.

Doodle alert

Someone has stolen March.  If you should find a whole month lying neglected in a corner somewhere, please pack it up and return to C&B Towers.  We have both managed to keep our Instagram feeds ticking over with a few pics of classroom and sewing room activities – despite all the hoohah over changes to Instagram which has led to great flurries of social media activity and apps such as Ello.

We have new EQ Doodles for April – pop over and scroll through this month’s offering.  You may even spot the (almost deliberate) mistake – probably no prizes, but comment below if you find it..

Chris has been fully occupied with classes at The Corner Patch and re-laying paving stones.  Barbara has been continuing with the sewing room clearout and a lot of class preparation and finishing a few WIPs.

We are trying to secure a date for a C&B reunion class later this year at Tittensor Village Hall and we’ll let you know as soon as we get a confirmation.
