No paper piecing with this workshop – fused is the name of the game!
A modern approach
Hexagons are a traditional shape in patchwork but Jennie doesn’t do papers so here is a very modern view on how to create the Grandmothers Flower Garden rosette and then she uses the satin-stitch on her machine to sew the shapes onto the cushion front.
In the workshop notes you will see that she cuts the shapes with the rotary cutter (and therefore uses the EZ template to keep her safe); you also learn the order of sewing so that you don’t have lots of ends to finish off (another great tip from Jennie)
It is so much easier to do this sort of applique work if you have the correct machine foot: check that yours has a cutaway underneath and an open toe so that you can see where you are going. – if you need to you can shop with us to get one that fits low-shank sewing machines: click here
