Christmas Quilt


1 Day

Sun, 19th November, 2017

10:00am - 4:00pm

'A cup of tea, a mince pie and maybe a Christmas song or 2, a little Bing Crosby crooning White Christmas always puts me in a happy Christmas stitching mood!' As Janine is not a quilter she has designed this quilt to make it as flexible as possible for you to make and leave you free to quilt as you would like. You will then learn some of the techniques Janine uses with the images to appliqué, draw and write onto fabric. She will show you how, and help you, to draw, design and use the images to make a stitched picture quilt or you may want to make panels and use them to make place mats, pictures, Christmas cushions etc... Her printing, drawing and  sewing style is very relaxed, easy and free and very quickly you will be able to achieve a lot. You can also experiment with some hand embellishing and embroidery whilst keeping to a very neutral Scandinavian colour palette which she uses or create your own.
