A beautiful sewing kit that contains all you need to make a 4 x 4 patterned or plain rectangular patchwork mat or start a quilting project. Fabrics are varied, Laura Ashley/William Morris style, floral, plain, pretty! Needle, thread, 16 pre-cut fabric squares and iron-on paper, and full instructions. Warning: It's addictive! Each side of the square when sewn measures approximately 6 cm. The technique used is called English paper piecing, which is the process of wrapping fabric around paper to make crisply formed shapes to be sewn together by hand. Once sewn, the papers are removed to create a beautifully pieced patchwork from which to make table mats, cushions, quilts or anything else you can think of!
