‘Lone Star’ Quilt Workshop
8th November 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£60
The Lone star block is a very traditional block, sewn often in just one colour tone. ie red or blue.
The picture shown above displays the lone star block you will make, however Tracy will bring along her incredible Lone Star quilt as exhibited at Festival of Quilts last year.
The block you create will be hand pieced, however we will discuss how alternatively you could machine piece. The piecing is all about matching the points and is easy to achieve, despite its complex appearance. We will talk about colour and how using different colours together can create different looking stars.
You will need a few different fabrics for the star, scraps fat 1/8ths or bigger. What ever fabrics you wish to work with.
A background fabric in a plain or low volume pattern is ideal.
Matching threads, or beige or greys are always good.
Please also bring with you a basic hand sewing kit and scissors.
Please bring a packed lunch and any refreshments you require, sorry we are unable to provide these due to Covid-19.
