Carolyn James Liberty Friendship Star Kit, Pattern and Video Tutorial


Hi, I’m Carolyn James and have been a patchwork and quilting enthusiast for many years.  As my skills and love of my hobby developed and became a major part of my life, I took the opportunity to become a patchwork and quilting tutor and have been regularly teaching for the past three years (including being invited to teach in quilt shops all over England).  I enjoy both traditional and contemporary quilt designs and particularly love free motion quilting. This has led me to design my own quilt patterns and teach workshops to share these patterns with my students.  In 2019 I invested in a Handi Quilter Longarm quilting machine on a 12ft frame and now also have the honour of quilting for my customers.


I was delighted to be given the opportunity by Beryl at Sew & So’s to design a pattern, kit and teach an online tutorial for the Friendship Star mini quilt.  I took the idea of the traditional Christmas Wreath and chose the Friendship Star block to create a wall-hanging that I hope will become a new tradition to hang each festive season.  The sample uses a selection of beautiful Liberty fabrics but would look equally stunning in a modern colour palette or theme. I have also created a separate video guiding students through two different quilting options using step by step instructions which I hope will encourage reluctant quilters to have the confidence to progress with their quilting skills.  Enjoy!
