New Sampler Quilt Course at the Cosy Cabin

I started teaching a sampler course at the new quilt shop The Cosy Cabin at Risby Barns near Bury St Edmunds this week. This is a 12 week course, running on Thursdays from 10am - 4pm, to make a full size (96" x 96") bed quilt. 16 different quilt blocks.

We started nice and simple with 2 strip piecing blocks. Watch this blog over the next 12 weeks to see how the sampler quilts take shape. If you would like to join the class then please contact the Cosy Cabin on 01284 811222
