Disappearing 9 Patch Workshop


Photos of the ladies patchwork. A workshop I did last Saturday of disappearing 9 patch.
Spent a lovely afternoon with 4 ladies. I hope I have encourage them to try new patchwork

For quilt fabrics if you Google quilt fabrics UK a list of companies will come up. Go through them and you will the ones that have sales and the ones that does not charge too much for fat quarters or
fat quarters packs. There are also lots of free patterns and demos online. Also take into account the postage price.

You will get to know the sites you like more. Keep sewing.
