This ongoing course will cover an introduction to patchwork on the sewing machine. Over 5 sewing sessions with some homework you will create this fabulous 'Strawflower' quilt by Living in Loveliness finished size 44 x 44 inches. [110 x 110 cm]. You will have the pattern to keep (RRP £9.99) with instructions and colour photos.
Once you have booked on I will give you the shopping list (don't forget you can also shop from your stash and/or wardrobe) with instructions on what fabrics to buy. If you need any guidance feel free to call or drop into the studio. You will also need a quarter inch presser foot for your machine.
Initially we will learn how to cut accurately using the rotary cutter and rulers. Then moving on to creating the blocks. Then piecing the quilt top. Once all that cutting and stitching is done we will create a quilt sandwich and quilt using the machine. Last but not least we will learn how to attach and finish the binding.
Every session will be held in the sewing studio upstairs at Stitching Kitchen, we will stop for a cuppa and cake half way through.
I can’t wait to get started and see how you get along with your strawflower quilt.
