Block of the month 2017

Block of the month for 2017 will be appliqué blocks for Christmas. Each month will be a different design and will be good to help you get to grips with appliqué stitches on your machine. It’s also a great opportunity to use up your fabric scraps as this type of thing uses bits and bobs. There will be 6 large blocks and the 7th month will be using appliqué on some of the sashings and a different patchwork sashing/border.
The cost will be £9.50 (including pattern) for a morning or afternoon session and will be available on a Tuesday, a Wednesday morning and on a Saturday (you are welcome to pay the normal extra class fee if

you wish to stay for the day). You can then put it together as a quilt or use the panels as wallhangings, cushions or bag fronts. The choice is yours.
You will need to book in advance and pay a £5 deposit so that we make enough patterns.
Requirements are fat 1/4’s for backgrounds plus fabric for appliqué.  Heat ’n’ Bond.  Matching threads.  Sewing Machine.
