Biased about Trumpets


 
Biased about Trumpets!
 
Create a cushion, bag or quilt panel from folded and manipulated squares. Many different variations on design arrangement yet Oh sew easy to construct. It's tactile texture for all with fiddly fingers who enjoy a little fabric manipulation. Learn piping and zip insertion techniques and make a cushion or explore Jennie’s special speedy methods to make a bag.
 
This block can be made into a small bound hanging or turned into a 40 - 45 cm (16 - 18") cushion. Some students may prefer to make two samples and play with the many different designs and not complete the panel as a cushion or small hanging. If so - bring double fabric requirements.
