Quilt-Along

Bernie Corner – 16/11/20

Join us for series three of our fabulous Quilt-along to create this fabulous quilt-as-you-go quilt, by Bernie Corner.

What is the Quilt-Along?

Two years ago, we launched our amazing Quilt-along series, which has had an overwhelming response! We were thrilled that so many of you chose to partake, to learn new skills, revitalise your love of quilting and give back to the community! We’re back with a brand-new design which shines a spotlight on quilt-as-you-go. This colourful quilt concept, designed by Bernie Corner, will enable you to push yourself to learn new skills, in four parts. By the end of the Quilt Along, you’ll have completed the quilt! Sewing machines at the ready, it’s time to start your quilting adventure!
