Learn to produce a small quilt inspired by a traditional 19th century Welsh design. We’ll be using local Welsh flannel fabrics woven at our local woollen mill, Melin Teifi.
You will have two days of professional quilting tuition with Lesley, learning techniques which will allow you to produce a small quilt approximately 80 centimeters square. The quilt is inspired by a traditional 19th century Welsh design. We’ll be providing Welsh flannel fabrics for the quilt woven at our local woollen mill, Melin Teifi. You will learn stitching techniques (machine and hand stitching) to complete your quilt.
What will each day involve?
• We’ll prepare our chosen fabric and cut out the pieces using a rotary cutter
• The quilt top will be machine stitched together to make piecing the quilt easier
• Lesley will demonstrate quick methods of creating a square in square and half-square triangles
• Borders will be added and finally the quilt top will be sandwiched for quilting
• Hand-quilting designs will be discussed and drawn on to the quilt top
• You will mark up your quilt and begin to hand quilt your design. There probably won’t be time to finish this during the day but you’ll be shown how to finish your quilt and add a hanging sleeve if you wish to display it as a piece of art.
