Note: Read all the instructions before starting the project. It is recommended that fabrics be 100% cotton, pre-washed and well ironed. Requirements are based on fabrics 107cm (42in) wide. Foundation piecing is used in this project and the instructions assume a good working knowledge of this technique. Sew all the foundation-piecing seams with a short stitch length to make it easier to remove the papers without affecting the stitching. Instructions are given for using the printed Pattern Sheet in the magazine, but you can also download the digital patterns from print them out.
