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 Sewing Quarter which you can watch here.
This pattern includes a full set of pre-cut paper templates (90 in total), but does not include fabric.
You will also need; • Seven fat or long quarters in co-ordinating fabrics. • Three 2.5" x WOF (width of fabric) strips in co-ordinating solids or blenders • 50cm 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 • Embroidery thread for hand quilting • 60cm of backing fabric - if you decide to hand quilt your panel, you may wish to use butter muslin on the back which is easier to sew through, then attach the backing after quilting, in which case you will need 50cm of butter muslin and 50cm of backing. • 22" x 44" wadding • 25cm binding fabric.
