Quilting class: lesson four

If you’ve read my previous posts on quilting, you might realise that I’m missing lesson three. Well I learnt to applique in lesson three, but It’s now a Christmas present for my In-laws so I can’t spoil their little surprise by blogging about it.

During this lesson I made a tote bag. We were given the option of making a book back (long) or a shopping bag (wide). We learnt a technique called quilt as you go. I’ve found a website that has a lovely tutorial about this called “a cuppa and a catchup” 

This was one of my favourite classes It’s a quick way of quilting and you can easily make a cot or lap quilt in an afternoon using this method. It can also be used as a front panel of a cushion or throw pillow.
