Patchwork and Quilting

Group Convener
Ruth Thomas

Informal and sharing groups beginning with the basic technique of hand piecing. We start with English Patchwork and then progress to American Block piecing, which involves using templates to create different blocks such as Shoo Fly and Friendship Star. These blocks, in triangles and squares, could then be combined to make a cushion cover or quilt. We will then go on to patterns such as Log Cabin, Crazy Patchwork and Cathedral Windows as well as the basics of hand quilting and machine piecing

    Our charity quilt

    In 2021 the Patchwork and Quilting Group embarked on a project to create a Sampler Quilt to showcase the skills and techniques they had learnt during lockdown.
    The quilt, which measures approximately 120 x 100 cm, is now complete and was made by a mixture of hand and machine sewing. It was raffled for Open Door, a local mental health charity supporting young people. The raffle raised ÂŁ500.
