Tickets for the Fat Quarterly London Retreat go on sale this Saturday at midday UK time. The weekend will run from lunchtime Friday 19 July to lunchtime Sunday 21 July and will cost £200. Although we have not yet finalised the class lists, I have decided on my two classes and here’s a picture of one of them. Having attempted to teach three different foundation paper pieced pillows last year, I have decided to keep it simple this year. One FPP “superstarstar” block. It’s a lovely quick and simple one to FPP so suitable for beginners. I’ve also taken on board last year’s feedback that you’d like to be able to finish what you start in the class and this block can be done in three hours with the benefit of my in-class speed FPP tips.
Although I’ve made this pillow with a very simple colour scheme (using Sweetwater’s beautiful Sew Mama Sew line paired with Essex Linen), it would make a great scrappy pillow and I’d even love to see it made without the background strips in between the stars so much much scrappier than this version. Please let me know if you’re planning to come to the London Retreat and, if so, what you’d love to be taught this year.
