Are you still surrounded by snow?
Even a little of the white stuff causes so much disruption here! Someone in particular is reluctant to venture out in it!
Thankfully most folks were still able to get to my classes. We are into our 2nd week of the first 6 week block.
And I'm happy to report that feedback about the new spacious and light-flooded classroom, stunning view and historical surroundings has been immensely positive.
I will soon be releasing information and dates about my Saturday workshops, starting in March. Watch this space!
(You can find more information about the classes here.)
So onto a beginner friendly quilt I designed for British Patchwork & Quilting magazine (January issue).
This is 'Handmade Spools', made using Makower's sewing themed 'Handmade' fabrics (view all the fabrics here).
The spool shapes are made using half square triangles, no tricky 'Y' seams here! And the centre of each spool headlines the cute prints of pins, threads, buttons, scissors and notions.
So if you want to dip your toe into patchwork and quilting without feeling overwhelmed, why not try your hand at Handmade!
