Crazy Patchwork Tip from Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 01-May-2017
Valerie used the paper templates, which she created in her previous workshop, but this time uses them individually, which enables her to use up even more scraps from your stash. By using flat headed pins she is still able to use the rotary cutter and ruler, keeping her fingers safe, and back in her own workshop was able to layer up several small pieces so as to make cutting out even quicker!
Just in case you were wondering, this can be sewn by hand.
If you would like to learn more about the original crazy workshop where she uses 5 or 6 Fat 1/4’s with no waste – just click here.
