Barbara Thornburn is now running a Patchwork and Quilting group. Members meet once a month on a Monday at 10am using Zoom.
Barbara is very generous in sharing her extensive knowledge and expertise with the group. Prior to each meeting she sends out information sheets and YouTube links to support the classes. At each meeting she will demonstrate a new patchwork technique and show us her own worked examples. Members then practice what they have learnt in their own homes. There is always plenty of time for questions and discussion.
We have not only been taught patchwork techniques, but have also learnt about the tools and materials needed and the importance of colour and design. So far we have experimented with squares, the disappearing 4 patch, log cabin, Roman stripes, string quilting and English paper piercing.
The gallery below shows some of the examples we have produced …so far.
