Patchwork with Carolyn Forster – Lined Circles

Lined Circles Carolyn Forster

We are delighted to be welcoming patchwork expert Carolyn Forster back to our studio with this fabulous ‘quilt as you go’ project.

For many the thought of quilting a large finished quilt top can be really daunting. ‘Quilt as you go’ techniques take away this challenge and there are so many to choose from. They allow you to work on a more piecemeal basis negating the need for trying to put a whole quilt top through the throat of your sewing machine. They also mean that you are dealing with much smaller sections of patchwork and quilting allowing you much greater control over the fabrics and also the possibility of taking your project with you wherever you go.

In this ‘quilt as you go’ workshop Carolyn will share you with you her techniques for creating this beautiful circular design which can be made into any size project you like. Yes we did say circular, but don’t be scared. These circles are not intimidating and the lovely curves are very achievable.

The class is suitable for both a beginner and more accomplished patchwork student and will be a wonderfully relaxing day of working with colour and techniques so you can take home a wonderful sample piece to continue to build on.

What you will need

You will need to bring along a variety of fabrics and some wadding. We suggest that you use 100% cotton fabrics but these can be new ‘off the bolt’, from your stash or reclaimed. The exact quantities will depend on how big you would like you project to end up and we can provide more specific advice on that during the class. If you are looking to make a larger project then we would advise working with new fabrics where additional quantities can be bought. Unless of course you are going happy scrappy!

Covid precautions

Whilst we continue to live with Covid where at all possible please bring your own sewing machine and sewing kit. Resources are available on-site if necessary. Please view our Covid-19 page for the latest guidance.


Drinks and biscuits will be available but we recommend that you bring a packed lunch with you.


During all of our workshops photographs are taken for promotional purposes only. Please make us aware at the time of booking if you would prefer not to be included.
