A Passion For Patchwork – In The Quilting Classroom with Jennie Rayment

May 26, 2013 — 3 Comments

Having a life long passion for sewing, and having produced a lot of the quilting classroom shows on Create and Craft TV with Jennie Rayment it was inevitable that I would want to have a go at patchwork. This is just a quick post with a gallery of some of my attempts.

The first Quilting Classroom show aired in October 2012 and since then it has been a great hit with the Create and Craft TV audience.

Jennie had of course demonstrated on a number of sewing shows previously and her in-depth knowledge and quick wit made for some really fun and informative shows.

As a keen sewist (apparently this is the new term for hobby sewers of both sexes – it’s PC gone mad I tell you!) I am always super excited when I get the opportunity to produce the Quilting Classroom shows as I too get the chance to learn something new from the talented Jennie Rayment.

Anyway, as you may have guessed, I just had to have a try at some of the techniques that Jennie shared during these shows so I thought that I would share a few images of the experiments that I created.  I also threw in an obligatory messy workstation shot or two as well as an idea for storing fabric strips – it’s just picture hooks and bulldog clips – hope you find it useful.

I am also glad to say that the Create and Craft TV studios have kept all of these classes online for everyone to refer back to.  All six previous lessons in the Quilting Classroom series, starting with Lesson 1 from October 2012,  can be found by visiting – http://www.createandcraft.tv/quiltingclassroom.aspx

The next lesson, which was the inspiration for writing this post, is today at 8am on Create and Craft TV – Sky 671, Freeview 36, Freesat 813 and Virgin 748 (sorry for the short notice – but at least if you miss it, it will be online with the other lessons soon!)

As ever, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to get in touch by leaving a comment at the bottom of this page.

Thank you for reading.

    Your talent is unlimited! What wonderful quilt work. I’m often tempted to start quilting but I really have nowhere to store all the equipment I’d need ( I’d have to have all the kit of course !). Keep up the amazing work. Love your material strip storage idea. Unfortunately I don’t have ledges around my walls to borrow this wonderful idea.
