First up, I’m delighted to finally announce my Autumn programme of In Stitches classes!  It’s a varied programme this term – hopefully something for everyone!

You can check out all the details here, and email me if you’d like to sign up for any of them. But be quick!  Places are limited!

One of the projects I’ll be teaching is my Disappearing 9 Patch Quillow.  A quillow is a quilt with a hidden pocket in the back, which you can fold the quilt up into to make a pillow!  Clever eh?!

I’ve taught this sashed version before, a couple of years ago:

D9P Quillow

 Now that I’m introducing it to a new class I thought I’d offer a non-sashed version:

D9P quillow

I love how different the design becomes when you take away the sashing and allow 4 of the D9P squares become the ‘background’.

Learning how to sash a quilt is a great skill to learn, however if you feel it is a step too far, you can stick with the simpler, non-sashed version!

Quillows provide a practical and fun way to make your quilt transportable and extra snuggly! They are great for kids and big kids adults alike!

The 2 versions of this quillow will soon be available in the one pattern in my Etsy shop.

Quillow Class: (8 weeks) Monday evenings, starting 2nd September.
