We are delighted to welcome award winning quilter and textile artist Philippa Naylor to Needle & Thread! Philippa has had great success in quilt shows in both the UK and America, and won many prizes, you may have seen her beautiful minature quilt Measure for Measure (below) at the Festival of Quilts last year, it won both the Minature Quilts Category and Best in Show. We are very excited that Philippa will be giving two workshops with us this year!
The Finish Line, Unusual, Creative & Clever Ways to Complete and Finish your Quilts
Be inspired by a range of decorative edges to take your quilt, wall hanging or home furnishings from being good to being really special!
We will make samples to discover how to create shaped and straight edge facings, how to make decorative rouleau loop trims and how to create a range of fancy prairie point details.
In addition to this we will learn how to hang and support unusual shaped quilts with plastic boning reinforcements that are invisible from the front of the work.
So much more interesting and inventive than the usual binding, this class will inspire you to make the most innovative design choices right up to the very last stitch!
Limited Places do book early!
Suitable for All Levels.
Equipment is provided and most materials, you will just need to bring along:
Four different fat quarters (a chance to use up some old pieces from your stash!)
Two Quilt Sandwiches with low loft wadding Minimum Size 18 x 12" (You can baste these quilt sandwiches if you wish).
We also spoil you with a delicious lunch, and serve you with copious amounts of tea, coffee and sweet treats to keep you going!
