Experiment with quilting techniques on 12inch blocks to create great free motion quilting designs.  You will get to grips with swirls, basket weave, tiling and many other designs to create a 'wholecloth quilt'.  Working on plain white fabric you either quilt in white thread or use bright colours to show off your designs.  At the end of the course we will put the blocks together using a 'quilt as you go' method.

Cost: £150.00

This is the completed quilt made by one of our customers who completed our first course.  I wish the photo did it justice, see the quilt in the shop.  Pam did her blocks in colour, and added her practice blocks to the borders with great effect.

It is really difficult for us to show good photos of white on white, but we always have some quilts made up in the shop.
