This beautiful Liberty print quilt is a great introduction to patchwork, or a fabulous way to build on your skills. During the course Karen will show you all you need to know, including use of the rotary cutter and mat for quick, easy patchwork. You will make the whole quilt, during the four weeks, with a little homework, so that your quilt is ready for Christmas!

You can select from fabrics in store, or bring what you have already to make your own fab Liberty quilt. Infact it does not have to be Liberty fabrics, just we LOVE them!

Either 9 x 0.25m of assorted Liberty fabrics (52” wide) or 13 x 0.25m of assorted cotton fabrics (42” wide). These will be needed for the first class, please buy before the class so we’re ready to start on the first day. The staff in Clothkits will be able to help you decide and choose a colour scheme if you need assistance
To finish the quilt participants will also need:
1.8m cotton wadding
3.6m backing fabric
4 weekly sessions, each lasting 3 hours.
