Come and enjoy a weekend of sewing fun in Surrey with Valerie Nesbitt and Emma Randall.

Optical Illusions with Valerie Nesbitt and Emma Randall

Over the weekend you will have the chance to work on one of the following wonderful quilting projects.

Storm at Sea: This traditional pattern has timeless appeal. The striking design has the suggestion of curves/waves but the piecing is with straight seams. Clever use of colour adds to the design   appeal and can also create a secondary pattern such as a heart.

Curvy Log Cabin is another optical illusion created with thin and thick logs, but again straight line sewing.

For both these patterns you will need to use a specialist Creative Grids ruler. One is included in your retreat fee. If you want to work on the alternative project later, additional rulers will be available to buy. Rotary cutting skills and machine sewing are essential for this weekend.
