Cathedral Windows with Leonie Fraser

Date: 15 March 2024

Cost: $100

Leonie has really simplified what used to be a complex process for making Cathedral Squares. She will show you how to make them entirely by machine.

In this workshop we will be using a traditional quilt design, Cathedral Windows, to make a very warm quilt that does not have a layer of batting in it.
It is a great scrap-buster, using a multitude of fabric pieces to achieve the multi-coloured ‘windows’. If you have a pretty charm pack, layer cake
or mini-charm pack that you were wondering what to make into, this could be the answer you are looking for!

 

Going Crazy for Jelly Rolls with Leonie Fraser

Date: 22 March 2024

Cost: $100

Leonie has done it again and expanded her repertoire of Jelly Rolls patterns to include another delightful quilt – so effective and so easy to make.

Jelly rolls are pretty, attractive to quilters because so much of the repetitive cutting has been done for you, but what pattern can you make with them that uses a whole jelly roll to make a decent sized quilt – and do it quickly?

The pattern shown makes up to a large single bed quilt and can quickly be adapted to a queen size by adding a second jelly roll. The quilt top makes a perfect gift for anyone, and the colours and tones can be modified by your choice of jelly roll. What is more, it can be quilted using
straight line quilting for a fast finish.

Australian Wallhanging with Leonie Fraser

Dates: Fridays 5, 12 & 19 April 2024

Cost: $340

Leonie has simplified the original pattern to make the construction of this beautiful Australian Wallhanging simple. There is a sample in the shop so drop in and see how amazing it really is – a great gift for an overseas special person or an heirloom for the family. You will enjoy putting the wallhanging together and learn lots of different techniques.
