Dresden Plate is a traditional favourite and Chris Porter has designed a special template to make this patchwork quickly and accurately. – AND she has a jelly roll option too!
Monoprinting with Angela Daymond shows us a really easy way to create background fabric for a project – and you can be inspired to try her Paper Bird design which we have already featured.
Throwback Thursday with Precuts
This Scrap quilt from Valerie is a great little workshop from our archives in which Valerie uses pre-cuts, and it is now FREE TO VIEW. There is a 1930’s version hanging behind Valerie and she works on a more modern red/white/blue option in the workshop itself; AND to make it easy for you all, you can purchase kits for both through the workshop – they have been put together exclusively for us; so once the postman arrives you can start sewing straight away.
