Unravel the mystery of patchwork and quilting and before you know it, you will be hooked on this addictive craft!

Using your own choice of fabrics (see 'Additional Information'), start by learning how to measure and cut using the tools of the trade and confidently constructing your first piece of patchwork. After constructing a traditional nine-patch block, our tutor will show you how to cut it up and rearrange it to produce a disappearing nine-patch pattern.

After quilting your front, complete a cushion cover by adding an envelope back or a bag with lining and handles.

Best of all the end result is this beautiful contemporary cushion or bag, made from the smallest pieces of fabric!

No experience in patchwork and quilting is required, however, you must already have some experience on a sewing machine or have attended one of our Beginner sewing workshops.

You will need the following materials which can be bought on the day from Bamber Sewing Machines if you don't buy before hand:

Fabric must be light or medium weight cotton (often sold as craft fabric or quilters’ cotton). For the cushion cover/bag front, avoid directional patterns (i.e. fabric where you have to keep all the butterflies, for example, one way up), stripes or large patterns - smaller patterns definitely work best. Stretchy, bulky or silky fabrics are not suitable. It's preferable to gently pre-wash the fabric and press it before the class.

For the Cushion Cover

3 fat quarters for the patchwork on the front (a fat quarter of fabric is 1/2 the width of the fabric by a 1/2 yard of length - 22" x 18").

50cm for the back of cushion and border (edge of the front).

Sewing thread to blend with fabrics

Wadding suitable for machine quilting 50cm x 50cm. A thinner wadding is recommended (such as the needle- punched cotton blend waddings- 2oz polyester is the thickest recommended.

Machine quilting thread or strong cotton thread.

Please note that cushion inners are not available from Bamber Sewing Machines but these can be bought later from John Lewis, Ebay, Abakhan.

For the Bag

3 fat quarters for the patchwork on the front (a fat quarter of fabric is 1/2 the width of the fabric by a 1/2 yard of length - 22" x 18").

A fat quarter for the back of the bag (it could be the same fabric as one of the fat quarters for the patchwork)

3/4 metre of fabric for lining and handles

Sewing thread to blend with fabrics

Wadding suitable for machine quilting 50cm x 100cm. A thinner wadding is recommended (such as the needle- punched cotton blend waddings- 2oz polyester is the thickest recommended.

Machine quilting thread or strong cotton thread.
