 Cosmic Happening!

 

Take one large square and one large circle and Jennie's specially simple construction technique to create this most unusual and ingenious design.

Simple to piece - just straight seams. Manipulate, embellish and embroider, add some decorative machine quilting to complete an 18/20" bordered panel.

It is appreciated that students prefer to complete or almost complete their class sample and each class is carefully designed so this should be possible. All classes are suitable for every level of sewing ability.

 

Requirements

This design can be made either in one colour or in a choice of colours.

Plain/hand-dyed/self patterned cotton or silk material is a good choice.

If desired, pre-wash all materials but use a spray starch when pressing to restore 'body'. Students choosing to work all in calico (USA muslin) are advised to select a medium weight material rather than a fine thin fabric.

Please cut all pieces before class

Background Material (black in picture):

One 18" square

Coloured Section (pink in picture):

One 16" square

Centre (orange in picture):

One 5" square

In addition bring:

½ yard/metre approx. extra materials (44" - 45" wide) for borders and backing

½ yard/metre 2 oz polyester/low loft batting/wadding or any other lightweight/thin batting/wadding.

A choice of designs is offered and some students may prefer to make two panels rather than complete one - if so please bring two 18" square (background) and two 16" squares and two squares for the centre.
