Breezy Blocks quilt top
Fancy a fun day of patchwork? Fancy using up your one of the Jelly Rolls* in your stash? Perhaps you fancy an excuse to go and buy a new one? Fancy a fun day in our warm and friendly studio with like minded people? Whichever is your reason for booking we can guarantee you you’ll find making this quilt top an awful lot of fun.
(* A jelly roll is a set of 40/42 strips which are 2.5″ tall by 42″ wide, the full width of the fabric. They will include at least one strip from each design in a fabric range meaning that they will all beautifully coordinate taking the fear out of fabric selection).
I love a patchwork project that looks much more complicated than it really is and Breezy Blocks is just that. Which means that it’s totally beginner friendly and completely achievable. Using a precut set of strips also means that its quick and, if cutting isn’t your thing, it will be a stress free workshop for you!
In this day workshop we’ll show you how to make this totally charming and complicated pattern in a totally simple and fun way.

You will learn basic patchwork techniques including rotary cutting and sewing using a 1/4″ seam and our tips and tricks for sewing strips.
