Tricky Triangles with Valerie Nesbitt

5_valerie-nesbitt-beaumont-sept-18

Triangles are one of the bedrocks of patchwork but all those points can be scary; so allow Valerie to take away that fear; she will show you how to create them quickly, easily and, more importantly,  accurately.  A great excuse to delve into your stash and create great scrap quilts.

Stripey Octagons with Jennie Rayment

5_jenny-sm

Play with shape and form to create an unusual strip effect. Make one block or four or maybe even more then add border or two. The design appears deviously difficult but with a little partial seaming - it is oh sew easy! Just sew sets of strips, slice into sections and ... it's a fabulous bit of fabric fiddling!

Learn to build your basic block, play with the colour value and have a go at ‘Fussy-cutting’ the shapes used in the block. You will soon be hooked by this fascinating pattern. The blocks we make in the workshop can be turned into a smaller project (cushion table runner or bag) or be expanded into a full size quilt.

This block is suitable for beginners to advanced quilters and can be made into a cushion, wall hanging or the start of the families heirloom quilt. Just iron, sew and achieve. Once you have conquered this technique it will open up a whole new concept in patchwork and quilting.

Join Karin Hellaby on this superb textile holiday to vibrant Vietnam. This special tour showcases the rich colours and cultural highlights of a truly fascinating country. Explore historic cities, walk and cycle through tranquil rural landscapes, discover villages high in the rugged mountains and stroll through local ethnic markets where traditional dress is still a part of everyday life. Vietnam's textile traditions are very much alive and you'll explore silk villages, learn about the ethnic Thai minorities' traditional weave, visit indigo farms, and see batik and the tritik technique found in the textiles of the H'mong hill tribes.
