Scrappy Zappy Do

By Jennie Rayment

Scrabble in your fabric stash and fish out oddments of material! A most excellent way to combine a series of coloured scraps or memorable materials into an attractive hanging, table runner or small quilt with a textured element. All made from squares and Half Square Triangles.

Discover how to roll and fold for maximum creativity. Add a striped border utilising even more scraps – hence the name of this unique design. Make the pattern larger or smaller, work in multicolours or just a few shades – it even looks good in one single material. It will be your own individual creation. Be guided through by an accomplished tutor of many years standing.

Listen learn and doubtless laugh. Have a twiddle with the end result – oh yes – you too can be a fabric fiddler. Ideal for all abilities. Design from Jennie’s book ‘Foldy Rolly Patchwork Pzzazz’ which features this simply splendid masterpiece and many more blocks to make into tactile blocks with textured surfaces.

You can watch this video as many times as you like, pause and replay so that you can really get to grips with the technique at your leisure.
