Meetup: Maple Leaf Workshop

On Wednesday night, I ran the first of a two-part workshop to make a Maple Leaf block which can be used in a sampler quilt or for a cushion, mini-quilt, bag or anything else you can think of! I made my block, above, during the day on Wednesday to make sure that I would be able to guide people through the techniques. Although I had made all the cardboard templates in advance, the marking out and cutting out stage is very time consuming so most people had only just got to the first bit of sewing by the end of the two-hour workshop.

If you are interested in making this at home, a detailed tutorial will be on the blog soon. At the next workshop, we will be completing the block and hopefully moving on to hand-quilting.
