Enjoy a Quilting Weekend with two of the UK’s leading quilting tutors.  You will have the chance to spend one day with each tutor. One day will be spent working with Valerie Nesbitt and feature fabrics and the other day you’ll be working with Jennie Rayment and some very clever patchwork shapes

Feature Fabrics with Valerie Nesbitt

Is your stash cupboard full of lovely feature fabrics?  Are you afraid to cut into them or are you not sure how to use them?  Well let Valerie show you how easy it is to create this amazing Postcard quilt by combining your lovely feature fabric with just a couple of co-ordinating or contrasting fabrics.

Changing Places with Jennie Rayment

Like all simple ideas this is a great one – yet another of Jennie’s original natty notions. Make a traditional patchwork block then change the pattern by simply removing part of the design and repositioning! Just turn sections round for a totally different effect, bond the new arrangement and Hey Presto – it’s a wondrous new creation. Just sew, cut and go for a fabulous finished effect. Simple to make yet oh sew stunningly different!
