Coming up in December on Justhands-on.tv…..
Even though Christmas is just round the corner we hope there is still just enough time for you to fit in making a couple more seasonal projects from Gail Penberthy: the first is a lovely Festive Tree Skirt, which could also be made into a fantastic table centre. Gail’s second workshop is all about her new love – Glitter Felt – we feel you can never have too much bling during this festive season, so you could consider adding it to everything it’s so easy to use.
Sit back with a cuppa and enjoy more of our visit to the West Country Quilt Show – this time we meet Stephanie Crawford, of Contemporary Quilt West and she takes us on a tour of the beautiful and highly original quilts her group exhibited at the show.
Workshops with Valerie this month have her sharing a Little Sweetheart quilt designed by Laundry Basket quilts which has a free pattern download from Makower; she shows us how to succeed with Flat Piping – which is a way of adding just a dash of colour at the edge of your quilt really quickly and easily; and she also brings us a show-and-tell style workshop on using the humble but inspiring nine-patch block
There are also two more blocks coming up for those of you working on the “Your First Sampler Quilt” series. Block 6 is the lovely Ohio Star and block 7 is known as Card trick which has a clever colour placement to produce a 3D illusion.
Our throwback Thursday this month features the talented Dawn Cameron-Dick with a workshop on her Invisible Machine Applique – an extremely useful technique to master with your sewing machine.
