Double Delight with Sarah Soward and Terry Summerfield

Come and enjoy a weekend of precut and layer cake fun in Hampshire where you will sew ONCE and make TWO different quilts at the same time.

Over the weekend you will be working with Sarah and Terry from Pauline’s Patchwork and you will have a choice of 3 quilts tops with different skill levels. For each of the designs on offer, you will sew enough to make a second quilt with a completely different design (but obviously the same colour range).
