Sat 23 Jan      Japanese Folded Patchwork

This hand-sewing technique gives the impression of intricate curved piecing but is simple to sew.  It is modular so makes a good on-the-go project and it is quilted as you go.  Expect to make a few blocks in the day which can be turned into a pincushion and needlecase or add further blocks for a cushion front, bag or table centre (Hand sewing) See picture overleaf

Learn the basics of foundation piecing with this simple but effective star block.  It is quite a quick block to construct and would soon build into an attractive quilt. (Machine piecing)
