This 2 hr class is suitable for beginners and will take place on Friday 20th May from 10am-12pm.
‘Half-square triangles’ can be hand or machine-pieced. This simple technique creates two squares at a time. Combine these with a light background fabric as shown above and you will soon have a 12 ½ inch block. You can use this block to make a simple cushion cover or continue to make enough to create a cot, lap or bed quilt like the one shown in the photo above.
Bring the following supplies, if you have them:
100% cotton fabrics (Hickey’s, Pippa Blue, Rags for Linda are suppliers in Galway see links to these websites in the right-hand column of this website)
‘sharps’ sewing needles
neutral (cream or light grey) cotton thread
sharp fabric scissors.
But don’t worry if you don’t have any of the above I will have basic equipment to share, scraps you can use free of charge and ‘fat-quarters’ of fabric you can purchase for 2-3Euro each.
Class notes will be provided.
If you'd like to join this friendly workshop (coffee and biscuits provided!) contact me asap at email@example.com there are only 2 places still available!

I will show a number of options for printing digital photos (or scanned images, drawings, etc) onto fabric using:
- commercially available pre-prepared A4 cotton
- your own fine cotton or sheer fabrics cut to A4 and stabilised with paper
- tshirt transfer sheets
The workshop takes place on Wednesday 18th May at my studio. For full details please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
