A big Hochanda welcome to Six Penny Memories, who are treating us with their very own regular guest blog! Read on to see their take on the year so far!
2016 has been a really exciting year for us so far at Hochanda! We started our regular sewing lesson on the last Sunday of the month at 1pm, featuring Florrie’s Sampler Quilt and over the first six months of this year we’ll be making two blocks per lesson and then we will be showing you how to put together a large Sampler Quilt. Let’s have a recap of what we’ve achieved so far!
We tackled a Quarter Log Cabin Block and a Hexagon Block using Assami, a lovely collection of fabrics. To inspire we also added in an extra project using the blocks to make a Table Centrepiece which Kim demonstrated, the hot pink fabric really looked fabulous!
In February we had the second lesson with demonstrations for a large Curved Pieced Block and a Crazy Block. The additional project on this occasion was a cushion featuring a boat with ‘crazy’ sails using the Sea View collection which proved to be extremely popular.
We also had some handy half metre pieces called Spots and Dots on the shows and a couple of seaside inspired patterns. A colourful children’s Play Mat and a lovely Stitchery pattern featuring a Coastal Angel.
Mid February we had additional shows with one of our Prym Bundles which are always popular and a Lecien collection of long quarters called Mrs March’s Antique in beautiful muted pinks and creams.
Looking forward now to the last Sunday in March and the third pattern in the series with two new blocks, A Pinwheel Square and Dresden Plate. The additional project will be revealed on the show.
We have another Prym Bundle and a fabric pack of 5 Half Metre pieces from the designer Jo Morton, and some packs of wadding, happy days!
We hope you can join us for a fun couple of hours with Six Penny Memories, and don’t forget you can find all of your supplies on Hochanda!
