Coming up in October on Justhands-on.tv…..

This month sees us visit a really interesting exhibition by East Anglian Stitch Textiles or EAST, called “Between the Lines”. Here each textile artist has reflected on the events of World War One and created a textile piece of work,  that in turn has resulted in an exhibition that is varied, thought provoking and commemorative .

As the nights begin to draw in we kick off this month by meeting two brand-new contributors, two Helens – Helen Butcher and Helen Howes – who are both members of the Modern Quilt section of the Quilters Guild;  they talk about their inspiration and patchwork experience and remember fondly their friend and colleague Kate Percival. Later in the month Helen Butcher shares with us a delightful workshop featuring some very modern cats

Our Throwback-Thursday for October is a super tip from Valerie on how to sew an accurate ¼ inch seam; it’s not what you sew that’s important, it’s what you achieve .
And this is important if you are taking part and enjoying the First Sampler Quilt series that was started  in September;  the two blocks for this month are the basic 9 patch (and some variations) which uses squares  and the Friendship Star block which is also based on the nine-patch grid but uses the half-square triangle unit.

Also this month, Valerie  brings us a brand-new workshop using a jelly roll and colour, to create this visually woven quilt (inspired by Carolyn Forster’s woven workshop that we already have on the site) and she shows us how to create the blocks and sashing required for Lynne Goldsworthy’s quilt called Dreams, which is foundation pieced and uses fabrics from Makower.


And finally in October and Valerie shares a very useful video tip on how to use flat-headed pins with  paper templates and your rotary ruler and stay safe.
