Now that I have worked out how to sync my photos I hope to follow up all of my workshops with details and images.
We started off the session by learning what crazy patchwork is and how it could be created. there are many ways of doing this but this was how I decided to teach it today.
We began by checking our machines and then constructing a small square sample using scraps that I had brought to the class.
We then backed them and they all became lovely coasters which can be used at home or at work.
Pictures are on my phone hence the slightly different shape.
We then moved on to deciding what to make next.
There was a choice and two ladies decided to use the pre-cut Moda squares to make the 9 patch cushion because they had never made one before but would re-visit the crazy patchwork another time.
This is made with lovely Moda fabric and looks a treat on her new sofa which was delivered today!
This is another Moda pack from a new shop in Truro along Lemon Quay Market. I have yet to visit this shop but I love this colour scheme so I may have to go!
Diana decided to go back to the Crazy Patchwork and make a cushion cover with the left overs from the bunting workshop last summer.
Penny is going to be a Granny so patchwork baby mat was started.
I liked the fact that several different ideas were tackled and as confidence grows I think this will increase.
Thank you ladies for signing up and coming along and i hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
Next up on 12th March is a new group for the Beginners Sewing Class and getting to grips with your sewing machine.
Have a good weekend.
