In this workshop Jennie shows you how to use this template which allows you to rotary cut your patchwork pieces quickly and accurately and she also gives some ideas for patterns and designs.
multi-size 1.5 inch – 12 inch
Great for borders or framing your block; hang onto the leaflet it comes with and it’s helpful for reference. The templates has two sets of markings; the cutting measurements for your strips runs down the centre and the markings on the side tell you the finished size of the blocks.
she also gives some ideas for patterns and designs – showing you storm at sea as well as the 54/40 or Fight block.
If you want to create a border then you could just lob the ends straight, but if you wanted to accurately cut pieces to fit, then the template to use comes from the Tri-Recs set – you need the recs bit! Jennie reminds you that you do need mirror images though.
Again if you are used to working in metric – you just need to follow the numbers that give you.
Likes to press seams open – seam press or strip stick.
