Students will be shown all the basic techniques required to make a sample place mat, using log cabin patchwork. Use of different colour combinations and arrangements, different methods of binding and quilting will be explained and demonstrated.
Required equipment: Sewing machine (in working order and students must be confident using it alone). Walking foot and a quarter inch foot desirable, but the tutors can be used if necessary. You will also need to bring a basic sewing kit and fabric scissors. All other materials will be supplied (fabric, threads, cutting mats, rotary cutters, cutting grids, irons.)
