Bumbleberries Quilt with Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 01-Mar-2017
The Bumbleberries range of fabrics is an on-going range from Lewis & Irene but not all the colours carry on from season to season, so while you will be able to make a quilt that is similar to this, the colours may vary a little. You get full requirements on the pattern, so do wander into your local quilt shop with a copy and get shopping!
Valerie gives you some tips on how to make the two basic units for the quilt as well as some hints on what to look out for in trying to get the perfect finish.
The pattern was designed for Lewis & Irene by Sally Ablett and in it she asks you to cut patchwork pieces that have 3/8 inch and 5/8 inch. Don’t panic, your rulers will help you easily get the job done.
If you are not a subscribed member of Justhands-on.tv you can still download the free pattern by clicking here. But you obviously miss out on all the helpful advice mentioned above!
Valerie has posted a picture of her version of Bumbleberries Quilt which appears in the Show & Tell section of the website. You can click here to see it.
