First session

The first session of Lynda's Easy-quilts beginners' workshops was held on 18th September, and was a huge success. Everyone there learned something (I learned lots!) and all were keen to continue the sessions.

Everyone made a number of 'Mount Hood' blocks and some hourglass blocks, and said they were going to make more at home. We decided to meet again in 2 months time, when hopefully they will have completed tops, and I will show how to layer up a quilt, tack (or pin) it, quilt and then bind it. Just to keep the creative juices going, I'll show another method (even easier and quicker!) to make half square triangles, and put them together to make a bear's paw block which could go together to make this quilt. There are only twelve blocks here, so think how quickly it will grow!

The next session will be on Saturday 13th November from 10-4 at North Kilworth Village Hall. Cost will be £12.50 per person, so either comment on the blog or send me an email if you would like me to put you down for a place.
