Templates are very useful when creating patchwork by hand and Jennie helps you avoid some of the pitfalls.
Jennie shows you how to stop the templates slipping; little tip about how to draw round – you thought that would be simple didn’t you! and remember to always draw on the reverse of the fabric!!!!
You would find all these tips helpful if you were to work on the Your First Sampler Quilt with Valere Nesbitt by hand
and in fact this item has been extracted from one of our earlier Block of the Month programmes – Rosebud Fayre – details of which you can find here.
This was a programme Jennie and Valerie designed together and is a medallion sampler, so teaches various techniques throughout the quilt (and Valerie ended up making two quilts because she had so many ‘work in progress’ pieces!)
