JELLY ROLL BARGELLO PATCHWORK

£30 one-day class, 9.30am - 4.30pm

(Some materials required - see below for details)

If you're a quilter - or an aspiring quilter - you may have come across the various terms and jargon. Charm Packs, Layer Cakes, Jelly Rolls... but what does it all mean? And more importantly - what is it all for?

During this class, you will learn how to use a Jelly Roll to create your own Bargello-style patchwork.

Designed to inspire and motivate, the class begins by choosing fabrics and looking at how various colours work together. Many quilters find this the most difficult part of the process - so this is a fantastic opportunity to design your own project in the company of other quilters.

Once you've arranged the initial flow of colours using our design walls, you will learn the techniques for putting the pieces together. We finish by composing your final design, ready for you to take home and sew into a finished quilt top. 

The project is designed to improve your knowledge whilst challenging you to push yourself slightly out of your patchwork comfort zone! We'll also look at other creative ways of using Jelly Rolls - turning a mystery object into something to love!

During this workshop you will learn about:

  • Fabric and colour selection
  • Colour flow and design
  • How to create a bargello quilt
  • Working with long strips of fabric
  • Improving your piecing skills
  • Multiple ways of using a Jelly Roll

Please Note: By the end of the class, you will be leaving with the composite parts of your patchwork quilt top, and all the information needed to sew them together and complete your project at home. This is to allow us plenty of time to look at colour, design, and new techniques. Building on skills learnt during our Patchwork and Quilting for Beginners class, this class is a perfect next-step.

If you haven't attended our Beginners Patchwork & Quilting Class; you are still welcome on this class! However, you will need a basic knowledge of patchwork - most importantly how to use a rotary cutter and ruler, and an understanding of the imperial measuring system. If in doubt, please email or telephone us to discuss whether this class will be suitable for you.

You will only need to bring the following fabric and equipment:
