In this workshop Jennie shows you how to use this template which is multi-sized and she also gives some ideas for patterns and designs.
With this 60 degree angle diamond and your rotary cutter, you cut diamonds from strips of fabric – so easy peasy! THe template is multi sized and allows you to cut triangles from 1″ up to 5″
Tumbling block is a classic design created from 3 diamonds and the 3D is created with colour – light/medium and dark.
Jennie uses 2.5″ wide fabric (which is in fact a jelly roll) and she cuts several layers at once which is what the rotary cutter was designed to do easily and accurately.
Uses what is known as a Y seam to sew it together
the same template is used to create the 6 pointed star
This is a favourite traditional pattern which looks really good with a wide variety of fabrics – such as scrap.
