Quilted Star Cushion for Christmas
Join us for a whole day to learn how to make a quilted cushion in this fabulous star design! You can make it in time for Christmas using festive fabrics or create an all year round one in other colours.
You will be able to learn at your own pace with all the help and support you need to create your own 20 inch star cushion.
You will learn how to accurately cut your fabric into shapes and piece it together to create a beautiful patchwork design. You will learn how to cut and sew accurately to match the points and then how to quilt it using our Janome quilting machines and accessories. We will then show you how to make up the cushion and how to bind it with perfectly mitred corners.
All of the skills and techniques you will learn will take you through a multitude of patchwork and quilting skills.
All equipment and batting will be provided but you will need to bring your own fabric and a 20 inch pad to make the cushion
For the Star cushion you will need:
1 x fat eighth for the middle star in a craft cotton
2 x fat quarters in contrasting fabrics in a craft cotton for the middle stars
0.5m for background fabric
1.5m of fabric for the backing and binding in a cotton or linen.
20 inch cushion pad
Suitable fabrics will be available to purchase on the day or from our online shop or you can raid your stash at home.
There'll be plenty of tea, coffee and cake to keep you sewing but you will also need to bring some lunch as this is an all day workshop
This class runs from 10am- 5pm.
You need to be able to use a sewing machine for this class.
Depending on your ability you may not complete this cushion but you will cut and piece together and start quilting. The rest can be finished at home.
