This is a  fun workshop were you will hand stitch a quilt that turns into a pillow, hence the name Qwillow.  It is perfect to take with you on summer picnics, days at the beach or for travelling. The project is a great way to get started on your quilting journey. It is handstitched using one of my designs.  During each class various patchwork techniques will be demonstrated and used to create your very own handstitched Qwillow. Templates and instruction sheets are provided.  Finished quilt size 40” x 40”.   Fabric packs for the project are available.
