About The Event
If you can sew and want to do patchwork or quilting, why not try your hand on this quilt course which is suitable for both beginners and seasoned quilters? The patterns can vary and so can the size! You can make a quilted cushion, table runner, wallhanging, cot quilt etc. The project featured here is the Stars of Hope quilt which is a beautiful variation of the Maple Leaf pattern for Christmas. Learn the know-how of putting blocks together and the use of colours so that each quilt can look completely different! You will be introduced to techniques such as making basic blocks, placing blocks, sandwiching with wadding and a backing fabric, binding etc.
