Patchwork Block and Quilt as you Go

Enjoy a morning creating a patchwork block or two. Each session we will offer you two different block designs to choose from , 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, using the ‘Quilt as you go’ method. We will also practise the technique of straight line quilting using a walking foot, or free motion quilting according to your choice.
