Online Interactive Workshop: Tumbling Block Patchwork

A veritable legend in the crafting world, Jennie Rayment loves the fabulous geometric patterns that can be created with simple shapes. See how three different colours can produce a dramatic 3D effect in a traditional Tumbling Block pattern. Make a 12" quilt block or a cushion.

Learn how to conquer that dreaded 'Y' seam, understand the importance of grain and get to grips with piecing techniques - you can be accurate if you know how!
