Welcome back after the festive season. Here at Edinburgh Patchwork we’ve been beavering away, working on new projects. The spring classes are about to start and there are still a few places left on some of them. We’re also about to add some more classes for April and beyond, including a lovely ‘Houses’ block which can be made into a cushion, wallhanging or extended to make a beautiful quilt.
We’ll also be making a project folder – perfect for carrying your latest project, rulers and cutting mat from place to place.
Ruler pocket – project folder
I’ve adapted a traditional ‘Chinese Lantern’ block to make it jelly roll friendly and we’re going to do that as a class.
So, drop in or give us a ring and find out what we’ll be up to in the coming months.
We hope 2017 is a great year for everyone – happy quilting!
Edinburgh Patchwork is now closed for the holidays. We hope you all have a great Christmas and we look forward to seeing our quilting friends again in 2017. We will reopen on Tuesday 3rd January with our New Year sale. All merchandise will be 20% off, including fabric, wadding, threads and haberdashery (classes are not included in the sale).
Check out Veronica’s fabulous version of the Tula Pink City Sampler. For the past few months, Catriona has been running a City Sampler quilt along with various people doing their own unique version and at their own speed. Veronica zoomed ahead and is the first to finish her quilt and some people have just started. This is a Friday morning activity (10:15 – 13:00). I’ll post more of them as they are completed.
