Hearts Table Runner with Double Fold Binding

Improvers – Doris Sampler Quilt – Day a Month workshop over 8 months.

Fully Booked

Each session we look at a new technique including standard piecing recap, piecing triangles, curved piecing, Y seams, English Paper Piecing, bonded appliqué, Hawaiian appliqué (needle turned), stained glass appliqué, foundation piecing in three ways including a Mariner’s Compass, Clam Shells, Improv and Seminole/Strip piecing. 

We aim to look at two blocks a day, these are to be finished at home, although we do spend a full day on the Mariner’s Compass. This course if perfect for those who have pieced before but are looking to extend their skills learning various different techniques, looking at both traditional and modern methods. Both hand and machine options are covered, and used, to make the various different blocks and I always like to include a little of the historical background of P&Q.

£50 a day and we can select dates to suit all.
