This is a mixture of patchwork and applique which can be done by hand or by machine. Whilst traditionally these shapes have been sewn in a row, Jennie now suggests we might like to design our own pattern with this shape.  It lends itself to forming a diamond, or a pyramid blob !

You do have to deal with at least the top edge of this shape needing to be turned under. Jennie shares with us a couple of alternative ways of doing this though.

However the final step is that the shapes need to be applied onto a background. You could do this by sewing machine using one of the pre-set stitches and maybe some lovely thread. Alternatively you could do it by hand, when the stitches would be invisible.

The pansy design will be coming shortly.
