Introduction to Quilting – Quilting Techniques Workshop – Foundation Paper Piecing

13 February 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


The quilting technique workshops are perfect for those wanting to learn the basics of the different essential quilting techniques covered over separate sessions. (please see course description here)

The sessions will run over separate weeks covering the different techniques and you can join for just the sessions you want to learn.

The different techniques are: Paper Piecing, Confetti Quilting, Log Cabin, Diagonal Strip Quilting, Applique Design and Quilt-as-you-go.

Each technique is quick, easy and great for using up your stash or scrap fabric. You may decide to use the design as an individual piece for a scattered cushion or tote bag. Alternatively, you may decide to follow a colour scheme and use these pieces to create a large quilt repeating all or some of the designs.

During the session you will learn to create one block using the specified technique coving all the skills required. This will enable you to make more blocks in your own time which you can piece together to create a large quilt should you wish.

Written instructions, requirements and measurements will be provided.

Foundation Paper Piecing.
Great results are achieved using FPP especially if your design is complex and requires matching points.

I have sewing machines available for use during the sessions, but if you do have your own sewing machine, I would recommend you bring it along so that you can become more and more confident in using your machines features.

We will break about half way through each session for refreshments, as sewing is thirsty work for mind and body therefore it’s only natural that there will be plenty of tea, coffee and cake to keep us going!

This course will run over four weeks, made up of four, 3 hour sessions, or if you only want to attend some of the sessions, they are £45 each.

Class Length: Four, 3 hour sessions

Max in a class: 5

Price: £160 for all four sessions, or £45 per session if you want to only attend some.
