An ingeniously innovative 3D circular sunflower-like design packed with nifty notions for tactile and textural manipulation.
Easy to assemble - no awkward templates - just Jennie's specially simple novel piecing technique.
Creativity rules OK - play with the shapes, experiment with colour, embellish with beads and embroidery, tuck in an insert or two and Hey Presto! a delightfully delectable hanging/cushion/quilt block approx. 28" (70cm) square. (As created on Alex Anderson Simply Quilts).
It is appreciated that students prefer to complete or almost complete their class sample and each class is carefully designed so this should be possible. All classes are suitable for every level of sewing ability.
This block can be made from one colour or use a variety of materials but plain/hand-dyed/self patterned are probably the better choice.
If desired, pre-wash all materials but use a spray starch when pressing to restore 'body'.
Cotton materials are preferable and students choosing to work all in calico (USA muslin) - it is advisable to select a medium grade rather than a fine fabric.
