This is the perfect introduction to the art of quilting where you will be able to learn at your own pace with all the help and support you need to create your own lap quilt (aprox. size 125cm x 85cm)

You will learn about colour theory and how to match your fabrics to create a beautiful design. How to accurately cut your fabric into basic shapes and piece it together to create a beautiful patchwork. Then you will learn how to layer up the patchwork with batting and backing, and how to quilt the layers together. Finally binding your work to create a small lap quilt.

All of the skills and techniques you will learn will take you through a multitude of patchwork and quilting skills.

You will need to bring 6 fat quarters for the top of the quilt. You will also need cotton fabric for the back (1.4m) and cotton fabric for binding (0.5m)- these will be available to purchase in the workshop or you can bring your own.

There'll be plenty of tea, coffee and cake to keep you sewing.

What a lovely weekend !
Claire was a wonderful teacher - informative and encouraging helping us make decisions as we went along .
I came away with the confidence and enthusiasm to start a new quilt straight away for a new baby in the family, due at Easter.
I would recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in making something creative .

Response from Sew Me Something:

Amazing that you've now got the bug for Quilting Carole! We are actually in discussion about further Quilting Courses so do keep an eye on our Workshop Calendar. Let us know how you get on making another quilt!

I had no previous experience of quilting beforehand. Claire was very patient and was able to answer, any questions I had. I learnt how to use a quilting ruler, a rotary cutter and now know what some of the feet on my sewing machine are used for. I brought with me, my 6 fat quarters, that I wanted to use and was able to purchase the backing and binding in the shop, the batting was provided. Lovely small, friendly class. Tea and homemade cake. Went home with a beautiful quilt, that I'm very proud of, which I made for my granddaughters first birthday.

Response from Sew Me Something:

Those 'other' feet with your sewing machine have finally come in handy eh! So pleased you enjoyed the Quilting Course, hopefully you will continue to use the skills you learnt and make another. Thanks Sharon.
