Phillipa Naylor Workshop 2019

Saturday 2nd February 2019 saw winter arrive for the first time in Cottingham, but we were not going to be daunted by a little snow. Phillipa was to teach us how to make a pineapple block using the technique of paper piecing.

Phillipa’s workshops are always a delight, full of information, useful tips and personal anecdotes. She began by talking about threads and suitable needles before moving on to the pineapple block. This one design can produce a variety of patchwork patterns dependent on colour choices and construction.

Having chosen our colour schemes and cut our fabrics we spent the morning and much of the afternoon stitching our blocks. Phillipa then demonstrated how to complete our blocks with a mitred border.

A very enjoyable and full day, thank you Phillipa.
