Want to start quilting but don't know where to begin?

It's good to start small, but instead of the usual cushion why not try your hand at a 'Little Gem'? These small A4 quilts, usually called Journal Quilts can be made using a variety of techniques and are often more forgiving than larger quilts where accuracy is all important. You can learn to work with greater accuracy as you develop your skills. Our 'Little gems' developed as a Tombola theme several years ago and were very popular prizes.
