Spring Week at Godinton House

Tomorrow I’ll be providing a hexie workshop for children (and adults) at Godinton House and Gardens just outside Ashford.

Sticking fabric over hexie templates is really satisfying for younger children and older ones can then go on and hand stitch them too.

My countryside and nature inspired samples are growing with the addition of some sheep for spring week. Sheep on a duck egg blue background, how could I resist!

Looking forward to sharing my love of patchwork and passing on some skills to the next generation, in the beautiful surroundings of Godinton!

    Sticking as in using spray on adhesive? Just wondering. I love using hexagons in patchwork! I have a hexi project that’s been on the go on and off for seven years. It’s one of those I dip in and out of – but I love the traditional shapes and every time I work on it I remember my Nan who used to have a hexi patchwork quilt on her bed made of all the scraps of fabric over the years.

    Using a glue stick along the edges holds the fabric over the template temporarily instead of hand basting. Really small children can join in with that. Funny how it’s come around to being trendy again, maybe as it’s so easily portable 🙂 Sounds like you’re making your own memory quilt, fun times!
