owl bunting

Owl Bunting with Jennie Rayment

Have fun with these lovely Owls. You can make them your own by choosing different styles and fabrics. Plus it’s a great way to use up scraps of fabric. So, you can use buttons for the eyes and bits of ribbon for the legs and small bits of felt and fluff (stuffing/wadding). Also, why not get the kids involved as they can be hand stitched. The kids can then have fun embellishing the bunting with bits from the scrap cupboard. Watch Now+

Crossing Points

Crossing Points with Helen Howes

Another of Helen’s clever ideas using pre-cut 5″ squares (but you could take layer cakes too and subdivide them). Make a lovely quilt, turn the squares into a bag or table runners, all  easy to make and your choice. At the end too, you can trim all the blocks to be an identical size, so a great block to share and make a group quilt. There is also a free pattern download available Watch Now+


Throwback Thursday

Sometimes we are unsure of how to put the various blocks  of our quilt together. Valerie shows you a number of quilts and designs which will hopefully inspire and inform you. Traditional sampler quilts have their blocks separated by sashing. Simple quick quilts can have the squares separated by sashing. Valerie also shows you how to ensure that the vertical sashing remains in a lovely straight line across the horizontal sashing – no wobbly lines allowed!   .Watch Now+
