We start off with lots more inspiration from the Hope Quilters’ Exhibition with Sylvia Critcher acting as our guide.
Workshops to enjoy
The workshops this month include a really quick JR bag – that’s Jennie Rayment but it could be Jelly Roll; a really quick Stripey Quilts from Valerie and how to machine quilt it very simply; and Valerie shows you how to create a Tumbling Blocks quilt by hand – the display quilt is stunning.
Textile Artist and Workshop
We meet Valentina Brunn – a textile artist with a flair for using postage stamps – who also gives us a delightful little workshop on landscape painting using Bondaweb and then turning this into a picture using simple stitching and textiles.
More for Your First Sampler Quilt
Your First Sampler Quilt with Valerie Nesbitt continues with Blocks 7 – the Card Trick Block – and Block 8 – simple pinwheels.
