Quilts Uncovered 1 and 2 DVD Boxset
A lifelong quilter, Jenny Barlow loves discovering very old quilts, finding in them fascinating clues about the lives of the people who made them and giving the stitching patterns they used all those years ago fresh life by teaching a new generation of quilters how to use them in their own projects. In this fascinating two-disc set, Jenny shows how you too can take pattern design elements from both traditional and contemporary quilts to create a beautiful and unique quilting pattern for your next project, whatever its size and shape. Click here for a sneak peak at the DVD.
Quilts Uncovered 1
In this DVD Jenny describes the origins of quilting, and how inspirational designers through the ages have influenced her own designs. Using simple and easy-to-learn techniques - and not much more than some paper, a few coins and a ruler - Jenny shows how to draw some of the classic quilting design elements such as the feather, rose and cable. She then shows easy techniques for transferring the patterns onto the fabric, and the stitches to use when quilting. Finally, Jenny gets you started on your own with some simple projects designed to get you quilting confidently.
Quilts Uncovered 2
In the second DVD, Jenny moves on from the basics to showcase beautiful projects that you'll love to make. If you thought that designing your own quilting patterns was beyond you, Jenny will show that with just a little practice it is not only simple, but enthralling, engaging and deeply satisfying.
- 3 Journal Quilt Projects. Journal Quilts are small, decorative quilts designs that fit conveniently on a sheet of A4 paper. These projects show why journal quilts give you the perfect excuse to experiment with different fabrics, patterns and techniques.
- How to make a Strip Quilt. The strip quilt takes design elements from some of Jenny's antique quilts. This pretty little quilt uses alternating strips of differently coloured fabric quilted using classic cable and feather designs.
- How to use a quilting frame. This technique allows you to quilt without the need for basting, and keeps the fabric layers flat, smooth and at the right tension. Jenny shows how to use it to make a beautiful little cot quilt that will always be a treasured possession.
- FREE BONUS PATTERN DISK
Printable drawings of all the patterns Jenny uses in these DVDs (as well as assembly instructions for the projects) are included on a free bonus disc in the box. N.B. Because of their size, a standard printer will print the patterns on many sheets of paper that you would then have to stick together. As an alternative you can order full-size, ready-printed quilting patterns here.
