‘Quilt in a Day’ course

I attended the “Quilt in a day” workshop yesterday, and had a great time! Working in Amanda’s studio at Ushaw was a lovely quiet and creative space in an amazing building, brimming with history. Amanda had planned the day really well and I came away with a great sense of achievement after making my own lap quilt! I had never done any patchwork or quilting before but have always loved the idea of making a quilt that can be kept in the family. I now have the confidence to begin making a cot quilt for my first grandchild and feel I have informed knowledge of the sorts of tools I need to buy. After looking at Amanda’s work I feel really inspired to design my own style quilt too! Thanks Amanda for opening up a whole new world for me! (Pam)
