Margaret Mew Merrow Croft Workshop

12th August 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Workshop Description

Merrow Croft continues Margaret’s passion for Medallion Quilts. Here she combines her joy of hand piecing and hand applique once again, in a charming new quilt in a fresh and pretty palette… but always with those splashes of her favourite teals and browns.

The pattern for this brand new quilt will be available as a Quiltmania Booklet publication in mid-2019.

Enjoy a class with Margaret and learn the techniques for accurate hand piecing the curved centre block… or make a start on some simple Back-Basting applique blocks; you will be amazed at how Margaret quickly appliques what is traditionally a pieced block.

Margaret’s eye for mixing colour and print is a key element to her classes so be sure to bring along a favourite fabric, especially if you have had trouble getting it to work in a quilt
