Find a cosy spot on the sofa and relax into this wonderful hand-sewing project featuring my favourite technique, curved English paper-piecing. Learn how to fussy-cut your shapes before sewing them together with a simple flat whip stitch, before appliquéing them onto the background, and finishing off with some gorgeous decorative big-stitch hand quilting.
This pattern is aimed at the intermediate sewist, although with full colour, easy-to-follow instructions, you will soon pick up the technique. You can also follow my demo on my very first appearance on Sewing Quarter (forgive the nerves) which you can watch here.
This pattern includes a full set of pre-cut paper templates (68 in total), but does not include fabric.
You will also need; • Six fat quarters in co-ordinating fabrics, with at least three prints with interesting motifs for fussy-cutting, one can also be a blender. • 1m of background fabric • Template plastic • Temporary fabric glue pen - which you can purchase here or refills here • Thread for piecing - I recommend a 50wt cotton, which you can purchase here • Emboidery thread for hand quilting • 1m square of backing fabric and wadding • 25cm binding fabric
