These miniature pictures are created with the patchwork technique called shadow applique which means they are very quick and easy to make.
Julia loves to create little quilts simply, quickly and easily with very little sewing. She uses the patchwork technique of shadow applique to achieve this.
And you can use even the smallest pieces of fabric as they are trapped by the netting/organza. So you don’t need to sew round those little shapes; you can simply sew across or down through the picture and it’s all done.
After watching this video, you’ll have a whole new outlook on the scraps you thought were destined for the bin!
