Patchwork Demonstration

This week our meeting was a slightly different to things we have done before. Instead of a workshop teaching a skill we had a demonstration of how to use rotary cutters to cut out patchwork pieces and show how useful they are.

We also had lots of books and magazines along with examples of quilts and patchwork to provide inspiration, from the comments on the night I think it worked!

There are lots of resources online to help you get started. Here are a few of my favourite sources of inspiration to start you off, they are all fabric designers that make patchwork and quilts.

Amy Butler

Anna Maria Horner

Lucie Summers

Some people were asking about binding quilts, here is the tutorial that Kate and I use from Heather Bailey.

If you have been inspired to start a patchwork project after our demonstration and you need any help please ask at a sit ‘n’ sew meeting and we will try our best to help you.
