Patchwork Set In Stone with Lynne Edwards

This event takes place on 6th October 2015 from 10:00am to 4:00pm and will take place at Stannington Village Hall, Stannington, Northumberland NE61 6EL. It is a Guild event being organised by Anne Colver, 01670 517199 or pacolver~doctors.org.uk.

Create a patchwork style tile pattern like those found on floors and in palaces for centuries.  We make it easy by placing separate tile shapes onto a background with narrow spacing between each piece.  This simple technique uses cut-away fusible web to keep the images soft and supple on the background.  Each piece of the design is fused onto the background and then outlined by hand or machine with blanket stitch in matching thread to give a soft organic look, just like the real tiles set in stone. 

Several different designs are offered, ranging from four traditional patchwork blocks to more complex larger patterns.  All will be avilable for you to take home and use in future projects, plus this skills-based day should enable you to create your own adaptions of floors and tiles or create entirely new designs in this way.
