l have resisted the temptation to do 'patchwork' for a very long time as l cannot be bothered with the templates ironing and tack well l've stumbled on a lady who does all this preparation - using Cath Kidston Fabrics and all l have to do is hand sew them together. So another wet Sunday purchase was one of her kits which came yesterday and l've now ordered another and l'm up and running making a patchwork cushion. Her shop is on Esty and called Shop: edinburghpatches this is the one l'm doing
The hexagons measure 2.5" at their widest point (1.25" sides) and the fabric is cut along the grain at the base.
The fabrics in this pack are: Red Paisley, White Hampton Rose, White Rose Sprig, Blue Provence Rose, Mini Shooting Stars, Sprig Red, Blue Mini Dot, Mini Strawberries, Rosali Floral, Rosali Red & Blue Gingham, Blue Ditsy Flowers and Red Dot on Pink.
The fabrics are all tacked on to paper templates and all you have to do is pick up a needle and thread and get started!
When sewn together in the sequence shown in the photo they will produce a 14" square of patchwork when trimmed to size. This could make the front of a small cushion or could be enlarged by adding a border. Of course they could make the start of a quilt if you're feeling ambitious!
For those of you following me l am still working on the Cath Kidston crochet kit and l will post picture once completed.
Have a good afternoon
