This is one of the first patchwork techniques I learnt, and it has remained one of my favourites!
I’m so excited to be teaching it next term, and am having fun making up some class samples!
First up, a Circle of Geese cushion, sewn in Mustard and Eggplant Irish Linen!
Next, a smaller sample, showing that foundation piecing can be used in little projects too!
This zippy pouch is 8.5″ square, making the Scottie Dog only 4″ square! Isn’t he cute! He’s from the book ‘A Quilter’s Ark’ by Margaret Rolfe. I used soft brushed cottons and linen to make the pouch.
There are of course many ways to use this technique, in quilts, cushions, runners, handbags etc.
And I’ve still to turn Spring Bloom into something! Another cushion perhaps? It is 18″ square at the moment, but I’m open to suggestions!
