With spring was just around the corner, we had plenty of inspiration to help you fill the longer daylight sewing hours.
We started off the month with Valerie, who was sharing a super nice and easy quilt designed by Jane Czaja called Delilah. It has been made with spring like fabrics and colours. You can find this video by clicking here.
Valerie also brought us a modern style quilt using the Hashtag as its motif. This video is available on our website by clicking here. For our Technique Thursday Valerie also gave you an alternative to quilting - tying or buttoning your quilt. To enjoy this workshop just click here.
We got a look at the natural world of the antipodes through the eyes of quilter Gail Lawther who shared with us her Glimpse of New Zealand and the beautiful textile and patchwork. Her trips there had inspired her to make. You can find video about it by clicking here.
Dawn Cameron-Dick brought us an excellent workshop on the Drunkards path block, which has great scrap potential. This video is also available on our website by clicking here.
Sue Rhodes returned to our studio with her own design entitled Dresden Plate Plus. This design is in two sizes. Also she split the dresden plate petal to create some wonderful colour designs. There was also some some English Paper Piecing to enjoy. To enjoy this workshop just click here.
Pauline Verrinder told to Valerie about making exquisite seed-pods or seed-heads on your sewing machine. So, you can find this video by clicking here. Also Fran Rose returned with how to make beaded buttons, to open just click here. And Jennie Rayment showed us with all her usual panache how to make a very natty and useful wrist pin-cushion.
