Online Interactive Workshop: Piped Baskets

From across the wee stretch of water that separates UK mainland & Northern Ireland, the lovely Judith Hollies joins us once again towards the end of May! In this class Judith will take you through all that's needed to make the most wonderful Piped Baskets - take it away Judith!...

Introduction by Judith:-

Have you ever fallen out of love with a patchwork panel, maybe you were trying out a new technique, or accidently cut it the wrong size?! Perhaps you have some orphan blocks or favourite scraps leftover from another project? Well Fabric Baskets (or Piped Baskets/Fabric Buckets) are the perfect project for putting surplus panels or fabrics to good use!

Fabric baskets can be made to any size and because they are quilted (either onto wadding/batting or interfacing) they are sturdy and hold their shape. You can start with the measurements of your panel and work out which size base you need, or start with your preferred base size and calculate the required size panel you need to make (I have a nifty formula for each method, including how to navigate those tricky seam allowances!). Adding piping to projects always adds that special finishing touch. Not only will we be learning how to make our own continuous bias binding (brilliant for co-ordinating your binding to the rest of the panel) but also how to make and attach the piping to give definition and a professional look to your basket.

So if you are in need of sewing-room organising, planters, bathroom buddies or a unique gift idea these made-to-measure Fabric Buckets will meet all of your requirements!
