Jennie's Stripy Stripey Story Quilt - Sunset Strip - Row 3


We’re up to row 3 – Sunset Strip of Jennie’s Stripy Stripey Story Quilt . It’s a simple form of Seminole which gets you using the angles on your ruler – did you always wonder what they were there for?!   And Jennie reminds you that you can use this form of strip patchwork to make a great Ipad cover (holidays are just around the corner) and also that we used this in her previous Block of the Month programme called Superstar. Watch Now+
