Sometimes we want to make a friend, a family member or simply ourselves happy with a small present but often can't find something special enough. I am sure you know what I am talking about. This patchwork block tutorial helps with that. It is well thought through, beautiful and handy as each working step is clearly illustrated on one page. And it is highly affordable. I want to share my passion for patchwork with people. Besides my work as a designer maker, I teach at crafts shops in London or as a summer special at the London Met University or I come to people's homes for 1on1 tutorials or parties. And now I decided to bring my work even closer to you, to be taught via pdf and at your pace. As we all know, paper is patient ;-) As usual I am using solids with starkly contrasting colours for my tutorials. Why? I believe the technique is too important to let heavily patterned fabrics distract. Besides, choosing fabrics for a patchwork project is such a joy that I feel I would over influence by choosing patterned fabrics for you. Note: The measurements in all my tutorials are in inches ["] and the seam allowance is 1/4". Skill level: Beginner I wish you lots of fun with this intermediate tutorial and hope you find it helpful. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY You should already know how to use a Rotary mat, ruler and cutter. You have made a few patchwork blocks already. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 12"
