To celebrate the online staging of Festival of Quilts 2020, Vlieseline have created a quilt-along project to engage quilters and crafters during lockdown in the weeks leading up to FOQ.
Vlieseline have partnered with author and designer Laura Strutt. Laura has designed the pictured log-cabin mini quilt top which is suitable for quilters with all levels of experience to make using Vlieseline products.
Live demonstrations can be viewed on the Vlieseline Freudenberg Facebook page each week, starting w/c 6th July 2020. All are welcome to join in with this activity which includes the free quilt pattern and step-by-step instructions.
Vlieseline also welcome participants to enter their quilts into an online competition with a prize of £100 worth of Vlieseline products. Further updates on this upcoming event will be included on their Facebook page which can be accessed by clicking on the link below. Please note, this information is not yet available, but please keep checking to find out how to participate. You can also follow progress by using the hashtag #Vlieselinequiltalong2020.
Vlieseline would like to highlight the excellent work carried out by Project Linus who would be grateful for any quilt donations after this event.
“We aim to provide a sense of security and comfort to sick and traumatised babies, children and teenagers through the provision of new home-made patchwork quilts and knitted blankets, and give volunteers across the UK the opportunity to contribute to their local community”
