potential for experimental play. See how this novel and unusual concept can be expanded and developed in many ways for use in quilts, wall hangings, accessories and home decor. Embellish and embroider by hand or machine for added creativity.

Suitable for every ability, its fabric fiddling for all. A uniquely different technique from Jennie’s latest book ‘Material Magic’.

  • Six 18cm (7”) squares (Turquoise shown here in left nd right flowers)
  • Thread to match fabrics
  • Sewing Machine + regular foot
  • (Hand sewing is acceptable but less will be accomplished)
  • Marking pen/chalk/erasable pen in contrasting colour to fabrics

    Preparation in advance of the class:
  • Sew both 33⁄4 x 42” strips together to make a 7” wide band. Press seam open and Cut strip into six 18cm (7”) squares.
