Patchwork - Machine
2nd Tuesday 14:00 to 16:30
No Fixed Venue
The group is a mixture of very experienced and novices so it's a good opportunity to swap techniques and help each other. We try to introduce a new method each month and also work on group projects.
Using a rotary cutter and cutting mat a huge variety of patchwork patterns can be produced quickly using a sewing machine. Designs can incorporate stripes, squares and triangles.
The patchwork can be used to make small items such as cushions, place mats, table runners etc or larger items such as baby quilts and bed quilts.
The finished tops can then be machine or hand quilted according to preference.
Rotary cutters, cutting mats and sewing machines are available for use. Fabric and a hand sewing kit is all that is required to get started producing patchwork tops.
