This fun technique makes double sided patches that are either hand or machine quilted before stitching together into a quilt. It is an extremley versatile technique as it allows you to create coasters, placemats, quilts and more.
Using a technique whereby you stitch and stuff then quilt before stitching them together the finished items can be bound for extra stability or left without.

You need to bring
- 81 x 10' squares or 2 x layer cakes or 324 x 5" sqaures (This would make a finished quilt 60 x 60 but you can of course downsize this if you wish).
- 81 x 6. 25 inch sqaures of wadding
- 1/2 meetre of farbic. You will be cutting 6 x 2.5 inch strips from the width of the fabric to join into a continious length.
- Sewing thread to blend
- Thicker thread for optional decorative joining of the blocks (Aurifil 12 or cotton perle 8 or 12).
It may also be help to being 505 spray adhesive and a point turner if you have it.
