Floating Triangles - Colourful triangles float across this graphic quilt!
The very talented Janet Goddard will be teaching her beautiful modern Floating Triangles 'quilt top' here at Fabric HQ. Janet is a very experienced tutor teaching regularly at the Festival of Quilts and at the Knitting and Stitching show and has also published books showcasing some of her wonderful designs and appeared in several magazines - Fabric HQ are super excited to welcome Janet to the Make Studio.
Floating triangles 'Quilt Top' is an easy make and a great project for anyone new to patchwork. Please note, Janet will be teaching the 'Quilt Top Only', which will cover rotary cutting, machine piecing and you will then be advised on quilt preparation. If you need help with sandwiching your quilt and to complete the binding, we run additional workshops called 'Tricks of the Trade' and quilt club, please contact us for more details. The mid grey background fabric really sets off the colourful triangles which appear to float across the quilt. The wonderful thing about this project is that it is super quick to make.
