The weekend of 13-14 October these three joined forces to teach at the Justhands-on.tv retreat at Denham Grove.  30 ladies spent two days sewing - jelly rolls with Sarah; Layer cake quilts with Pauline and Valerie's class worked on projects of their own choosing; They all had so much fun that a repeat event has been  planned for 2019! There is a choice of sewing one of these two wonderful jelly roll quilts with Sarah - skill level challenging   or one of these two with Pauline - skill level beginner - again from jelly rolls.

Beachomber fabric range from Makower

Valerie received another promo pack of 10inch squares from Makower covering this lovely range and  decided to use them to create this lovely quilt, inspired by a pattern from Stephanie Prescott called Plus and Minus; Valerie had to change the size of the pieces so that they could be cut from the layer cake, and because she had bits over, designed a pieced border to use them up - but is very pleased with the end result.

Counting Sheep and Merryn – two new cot quilts from Valerie

I was a lucky girl to receive promo 10 inch squares of these two fabric ranges from Makower Fabrics;  while the size of the squares were the same the number of them varied betyween the two designs,  but I was still able to produce two delightful little quilts (for my Momentum charity) with a quick and easy slash quilt idea.

A Patchwork and Quilting Weekend in Hampshire November 2019

Date: 23 - 24 November 2019
Location: Langstone Quays Resort, Hayling Island, Hampshire
Price:£375

Two great tutors to choose from. Come along for two days of Patchwork and Quilting inspiration Blazing Star with Jennie Rayment Fun fabric fiddling this weekend as we demystify and simplify this simply stunning block - The Blazing Star (or Lone Star) – which can be used as a medallion centre for a larger quilt, or just on it’s own.

Filming with Carolyn Forster

What a great day we had together with Carolyn last week and we have some really lovely workshops ready for editing;  Carolyn spent the day sharing with us her 'Joy of Sewing' and we have a whole series of workshops on how to sew patchwork by hand - a great alternative to EPP and not a stitch in sight! She also showed us how to design cable quilting which you can customize for your own quilt size; there is a super quick layer-cake bag and a wonderful woven scrap quilt too (see picture below).
