Patchwork & Quilting

“Storm At Sea” blocks

This course is suitable for enthusiastic beginners with a basic sewing knowledge, as well as those with more experience who wish to explore this particular patchwork technique.

This year's course will be to explore the fascinating “Storm At Sea” block.

We will be using a specific rotary cutting template set that enables really accurate cutting and piecing, with fussy cutting if desired. The template set will be provided at the retreat and the cost is included in the course fee.

The “Storm At Sea” block allows endless creativity with the designs it will produce in quilts; it’s all about where the colours are placed within the block that produces waves and shapes, creating beautiful flowing patterns.

During the week we will learn to accurately cut and stitch the individual block and go on to create a quilt or wall hanging of your preferred size. You will work at your own speed with support from me. The speed you work at will determine how much you get completed in the week, but I would anticipate that enough blocks to complete a lap quilt will be achieved, or continue creating blocks towards something larger.
