Each month we make a different Quilt Block. Our workshop theme is ‘A Quilter’s Year’.

Working with different kinds of patchwork and quilting techniques, we quilt our blocks ‘as we go’ and join them together using the ingenious ‘sashing’ technique. This means that, as we make our blocks, we build our finished quilt - how fabulous is that?!

Each session is supported by our illustrated, monthly instruction sheets. These build up into a comprehensive folder during the course of the year.


Please note: Depending on your past level of experience and progression during the workshops, you may have to finish parts of the project at home.



Our tutor for this workshop is Bryony Jefferson-Downing.

Bryony has run Sewing and Craft Workshops in the community for many years.

A Textile graduate, Bryony has been sewing for most of her life. 


This workshop is part of our Quilters’ Skill Building series.
