Sylvia has taken a simple block and given it a clever twist to create this lovely table runner and/or scrap quilt. This is part of our Throwback Thursday programme where we revisit workshops from our archive.
Sylvia guides us through how to make this simple block and she has designed this interesting table runner – approx 48″x32″ – or you could raid your fabric stash to make an interesting scrap quilt.
The block itself is quite unusual as it takes four to make the star shine.
Follow her simple steps which give you accurate sewing (and she uses up all the bits too so there is no waste!)
2012 is going to be quite a patriotic year with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations as well as the Olympics so you could give a thought to making the quilt in the patriotic colours of Red, White and Blue (which obviously applies to those of you in Russia as well as the USA).
Known mostly for her trapunto and faux French boutis, Sylvia teaches a wide range of patchwork techniques, and you can contact her by tel: 01732 462653 or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org in respect of teaching assignments. She is prepared to travel and has just come back from teaching at a patchwork retreat in Spain!
Sylvia has established her own unique process for combining raised quilt and stitch techniques to create wonderful effects.
