Dianne Barnden

I am passionate about quilting and all things quilting. My quilting journey began 20 years ago when I signed up for a community education class “Beginners Sampler Quilt”, little did I know just what an impact that class would have in my future. I am thrilled to be able to introduce quilting into the life of another like minded people and to see their journey unfold. Through quilting I have met the most amazing people and found a creative outlet which at times pulls us through those little humps in the road.

I am a trained Montessori Teacher and currently am the head Teacher at Tawa Montessori Preschool. I am married to the most supportive husband. We have a grown up son who now insists he has enough quilts!

PATCHWORK: Doily Quilt
1 Sunday - On 16 August from 9am-4pm

This is the ideal project to use those doily’s we love collecting and that are lurking in cupboards. The quilt is designed to fit any amount of doily’s as you can make it as big or as small as you like. The key to this quilt is to have fabrics that will not over power your doily’s and ones that complement the embroidery of the doily’s.

PATCHWORK: Hexagons
1 Sunday - On 2 August from 9am-4pm

The hexagons are ideal for using a variety of fabrics in. The hexagons in my sample have up to 3 different fabrics in a hexagon so it is also great as a scrap quilt, and using up some of that stash!
