This is a very comprehensive workshop from Carolyn, who loves to share her passion for quilting, showing you how to design your own cables
We start off by enjoying some antique and more modern quilts in which Carolyn shows us various styles of cable quilting and then Carolyn goes on to show us how we too can create these lovely designs quickly and easily.
She reminds us not to be afraid of the corners – there are ways round them (as it were!) and also a very easy way of dividing up the space that needs to be filled – remember paper folding?! – and then again several lovely tips on how to redesign your border so that it all fits.
You will hear that Carolyn likes to ‘mark’ her quilt with a hera marker – which infact creates an indent and is often used on darker fabrics, but depending on your lighting can work just as well with light fabrics – we have one in the shop – just click here.
In this workshop Carolyn doesn’t go into the actual stitching of these cables, but if you have enjoyed this and would like to learn more – use the quick link: Carolyn Forster.
Stop Press:We are thrilled to tell you that Carolyn will be joining us at a quilt retreat for a scrappy weekend in February 2018 at the fabulous Aztec Hotel and Spa in Bristol and if you would like to learn more about this – just click here.
Carolyn is an accomplished quilt maker, teacher and author of several books and patterns. Carolyn has been sewing quilts for over 20 years and just loves using up scraps. She is constantly inspired by vintage quilt blocks she finds on her travels and she brings them up-to-date with modern construction techniques – stitch n’ flip and Quilting on the Go are two of her favourites.
