Pretty Patchwork.

2nd March.

Log Cabin Patchwork is a very old form of block making for quilts. In this workshop we will be learning how to cut and make the block in its traditional form. You will have the choice of stitching it by hand or on the sewing machine. Studio15 will provide sewing machines, however, you are more than welcome to bring your own if you prefer. We want you to be confident and happy, and not struggling to master a strange sewing machine if you are a beginner to this craft. 

'What about the new look' I hear you cry! Once you have constructed your block, we will explore combining techniques such as applique, embroidery and fabric collage to give this beautiful old design a new and contemporary twist.
