This DVD boxed set of 2, covers designing and stitching for hand quilting patterns and practical hand quilting exercises. – approx running time 160 minutes.
If you thought that designing your own quilting patterns was beyond you, Jenny will show you that it is not only simple but entralling, engaging and deeply satisfying.
These DVDs Feature: • 3 Journal Quilt Projects. Journal Quilts are small, decorative quilts designs that fit conveniently on a sheet of A4 paper. These projects show why journal quilts give you the perfect excuse to experiment with different fabrics, patterns and techniques. • How to make a Strip Quilt. The strip quilt takes design elements from some of Jenny’s antique quilts. This pretty little quilt uses alternating strips of differently coloured fabric quilted using classic cable and feather designs. • How to use a quilting frame. This technique allows you to quilt without the need for basting, and keeps the fabric layers flat, smooth and at the right tension. Jenny shows how to use it to make a beautiful little cot quilt that will always be a treasured possession. • FREE BONUS PATTERN DISK Printable drawings of all the patterns Jenny uses in these DVDs (as well as assembly instructions for the projects) are included on a free bonus disc in the box. N.B. Because of their size, a standard printer will print the patterns on many sheets of paper that you would then have to stick together.
Approx. Running Time: 160 minutes
