Jennie Rayment shares a great way to use up large print fabric to create this lattice window effect.
Simple tucks in two directions create this delightful picture. Taken from her Tucks and Textures book, Jennie shares with us how to create a delightful landscape style wall hanging (or cushion) and suggests this is a great way to use up some old furnishing fabric.
You could add a little extra floral decoration by using Broiderie Perse. This is a simple form of applique where you cut out the pre-printed design. Also, by using shadow applique you don’t need to sew round the edges of the inserted flowers – clever trick.
(Jennie has a complete workshop on Broiderie Perse if you enjoy this idea)
A word of warning though – do pay attention to the direction you need to cut your squares!
