This sampler quilt designed by Sallieann Harrison is perfect for beginners .
Sallieann takes you through all the steps you need to create this delightful quilt, designed by her and remade for us using Forest Fruits colour pack from Oakshott fabrics.
During the series of workshops you will learn how to rotary cut safely; machine piece accurately with 1/4″ seam allowance; press (rather than iron) your work; be introduced to the fused applique form of patchwork; add sashing and borders; layer quilt and finally bind using a double fold machine binding technique.
Here is a list of the fabric quantities you will need:
A – Grey/Cream background fabric – 1.25 metres
B – Black sashing and borders – 1.75 metres
C – Forest Fruits Pack (colours) – 1 fat eighth bundle of 8 fabrics
N.B. – Oakshott fabrics are slightly wider than the traditional quilting cottons, so if you are substituting from your stash or another supplier, then you will need more for the background, sashing and borders
- Light weight sew-in interfacing – Fat eighth
- Wadding – Twin Size
- Matching Sewing Thread – 50 wt. cotton
