From Light to Dark lap quilt workshop with Annabelle Reynolds

November 24 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

The key to this striking quilt in the clever placement of light, medium, and dark colours. Achieved with relatively simple looking 1/2 square triangles and 1/4 square triangles the whole effect is down to the choice of fabrics. Throw in a strip pieced border and prairie points and this quilt should ‘light’ up any home. A sample should be in the shop by early September.

Twinkle twinkle little star Tablerunner Workshop with Annabelle Reynolds

October 27 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

This versatile runner is made from two blocks. The first contains an eight pointed star, the second is a ’9′ patch. This might seem to be a little on the ordinary side but these blocks are made with random cuts and very few matching points! The blocks are joined with a narrow sashing so you can make your runner as long as you like, they even make ideal placemats. Using one or more star printed fabric certainly makes this project…

3 Dimensional Daisy with Linda Hancock

September 12 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Following the success of the Crazy Rose flower block we have decided to expand on the floral theme. This is a curved pieced block with some petals inset into the background whilst others are raised giving a three dimensional effect. The block could then be part of a quilt or used on it’s own and turned into a cushion cover or wall hanging. You know you are always in for a good day with Linda.

Weaver Fever with Judi Mendelssohn

July 28 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

What appears as a relatively complicated woven design is actually made up from repeating one deceptively simple block. It requires yardage of fabric so although it looks like it could be made from a strip/jelly roll it is not. Two days of rotary cutting, whizzing along on the machine, more cutting, more whizzing, creating an interesting quilt top. Don’t you just love Judi’s descriptions being complete mumbo jumbo? Those of you that have been on any of Judi’s workshops know…

Victorian Crazy Patchwork Rose with Linda Hancock

June 16 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

This delightful summer rose is foundation pieced onto fine calico by either hand or machine (whichever you prefer) then embellished with embroidery threads over the seam lines. The leaves and stems are appliqued, which again can be done by either hand or machine. This is a wonderful example of putting different techniques together to achieve a very effective finish. The finished result could then be used for maybe a cushion or for the more adventurous a focal point for that…
