Patchwork Block and Quilt as you Go

Enjoy a Saturday morning creating a patchwork block or two. Each session we will offer you two different block designs to choose from for you to put together, suitable for novice and seasoned patchworkers. Either of these blocks can be used individually for cushions and smaller projects or you could save them up to make a larger quilt. We will also practise the technique of straight line quilting using a walking foot.
