Patchwork and Quilt a Throw

If you’ve ever wanted to make a beautiful patchwork throw, but put off by the geometric designs, maths involved and all the expensive tools and templates needed, then this course is for you. No measuring, no expensive tools just a stunning quilt to show using a back to basics method.
You will make a patchwork quilt approximately the size of a single fleece blanket which can be used for snuggling up on the sofa or as a warm layer on a bed. You can hand embroider, or stitch buttons onto it as embellishment. There are no rules!
You could even use recycled materials like outgrown men’s shirts, cotton dresses or coloured cotton duvet covers.
Suitable for those who enjoy stitching, crafts and making things by hand.
