If you have already experienced Christine's Happy Scrappy approach to patchwork and would like to do some more and maybe tackle something bigger and more ambitious than a cushion cover, this is for you. If you haven't, don't worry, you will be brought up to speed! Includes a day out!
Christine's back to basics and recycling/repurposing technique is perfect for the patchworking novice or anyone terrified of fat quarters and jelly rolls. Taking inspiration from African-American and early quilts, this approach to patchwork is liberating, creative and great fun resulting in unique pieces.
"Our day out is something rather special with a trip to the American Museum in Bath where there is an exhibition of Kaffe Fassett's Quilts in America - 20 of his own quilts plus a selection from the collection held by the museum which he used to inspire his new work. And on the way back to Denman we shall pop into Abingdon and discover the joys of Masons - a proper traditional haberdashers and fabric shop, full of temptation. There's also a good selection of charity shops to peruse where you might find useful garments to supplement your patchwork."Book Now
