Description

Make Templates and Create the 3D Look

In this video Valerie shows you how to make the template and select the fabrics to create the tumbling block effect. Then she has a couple of tricks to help make the sewing really tough at the corners.

Traditional Patchwork

Traditional sewing means that it is very portable. This may suit your lifestyle well if you hang around in cars waiting to collect someone – kids or husband!   Also if you commute it’s a great way to use the time and create a quilt without really seeming to have spent hours at it!

Scraps and History

Sort out your scraps too and create a wonderful heirloom quilt – Jo used lots of fabrics that had meaning to her family and their life.

No Papers involved

Handpiecing the traditional (American) way is by using a simple small running stitch;  you do however need to have a template and mark your sewing line on the back of your fabric.

This is NOT over papers.

If you have enjoyed this form of portable patchwork, Paula Doyle made  a small sampler quilt which you can enjoy by clicking here
