At the Festival of Quilts in 2016 Valerie Nesbitt of justhands-on.tv (JHOtv) was set a challenge by Michael Oakshott to use a Lipari Fat 8ths Pack with added Scandinavia 01 Bergen for backing. Valerie produced the stylish Paths and Stiles Lipari quilt and a filmed tutorial.
We hope you've come across justhands-on.tv but if you haven't then perhaps you'll be interested to know that the idea behind JHOtv is to share through workshops and demonstrations the work of talented patchworkers and quilt artists that we have in this country. It allows you to enjoy these workshops and their inspiration in your own home from UK tutors to whom you might not otherwise have access – at any time of the day or night that suits. It is also a great resource for groups and shops. It is a subscription service and you can buy the supplies for the projects through the JHOtv shop.
You'll find a taster for the Paths and Stiles workshop on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/
In the designer's words: Valerie describes how she chooses fabrics and colours for use in sample quilts for her workshop tutorials on justhands-on.tv.
