March 23rd and 24th.  Quilt AS You Go with Colour

Tutor: Beth and Trevor Reid.  Cost: $110 or $120 non members

The workshop will cover the use of colour and tonal values and the importance colour placement plays in putting a top together. Using a straightforward pieced design, the quilt will be machine quilted in sections using a walking foot and then constructed using a quilt as you go method. This method allows the pieces to be joined seamlessly without tramming showing to the front.

April 28th. Quilt AS You Go

Tutor: Monica Poole  Cost: $110 or $120 non members

This technique enables  you to quilt each section of your quilt with ease before joining it together with Monica’s simple fully machine sewn method. Even the bindings can be machine sewn with a neat 1″(25mm) wide modern finish which looks great and is perfect for busy sewers. The quilts are not tricky or complicated, they have been designed to make you say “yes, I can make that”
