Quilt Club

Once your quilt top is pieced, Mrs S will take it home and pin-baste it for you. Then you get to use the Activa with a walking foot to quilt along your seam lines. It might take a week if you have to snatch time before school and in the lunch hour.

Then you choose a binding and learn to carefully machine-stitch it down because 5 metres of hand stitching just seems like a mountain too high. And then, look! All pressed and trimmed and ready to pack for an international flight.

  1. Very impressive. I love that these kids get to learn such an impressive and useful artform. Maybe they could teach me a thing or two.

    How’s it going with the crochet, Mrs S?
