Jennie gets to create the gardens and path for this row. She takes the basic and classic Drunkard’s path pattern which could also be used as a clamshell. She shows you how easy it is to sew – just 5 pins to hold the curved shape into place.
The acrylic rotary cutting template keeps your fingers safe and of course includes seam allowance. As it’s completely see-through, you might think too about fussy cutting your fabric, if you are using a floral that is.
If you are making the quilt, you will need 6 units but Jennie thought this was all too simple. She shows you how to create the pieced look and you will see just how easy it is. It might even get you thinking about strip piecing those units for another project! However, do remember that this sewing and trimming back is only possible because it is machine sewn not hand pieced.
Have you also noticed that there are no flowers yet? Don’t worry we’ll come back to those later when Jennie talks about Adding applique.
