View Basket


This 30” square Mandela quilt is constructed in wedges on a tear away fabric.  Participants will be shown how to create their own design using a few simple lines or opt to use the version provided.

The addition of circles or other shapes can add extra interest.

We’ll use the decorative stitches on your sewing machine to embellish the wedges before assembling and inserting onto the background fabric.

This is not a pieced project.  Requirements list can be found under essential information.

Carol Munro

Carol has been passionate about patchwork and quilting for over twenty years and loves being able to pass on her knowledge to others. Her favourite techniques include appliqué and foundation piecing, although she’ll happily work on any technique. She holds City and Guilds Diplomas in both Patchwork and Quilting, and Embroidery. Carol loves free motion quilting, and having discovered ruler quilting several years ago, she will often combine both when quilting her quilts to achieve the desired effect. Nothing pleases her more than seeing students grow in confidence and enjoying new found skills.

Stick Fabric Glue

1m Freezer Paper

10cm Bondaweb

Monopoly monofilament thread ***


Thread for decorative stitching, bring a selection of colours, it’s nice to use threads which will contrast with your fabric and add a bit of a pop.

I use Glide threads, but any rayon threads will work, it will also add a slight sheen to your piece.


You could also bring some decorative threads for couching, beads and any other embellishments you might want to use.


Rotary cutter, mat and ruler.

Pen/pencil for tracing design.

Any other notions you like to use.
