Patchwork is the process of sewing fabric pieces together into a larger design. This process allows you to incorporate a range of fabric designs and prints into your piece of work, making it a real show piece. Learn the different ways to create a patchwork project and the tools you need in this section.
Quilting is the process of sewing multiple layers of fabric and wadding together to create a quilt or quilted garment. A ‘quilt sandwich’ consists of a quilt top which would normally be a patchwork, appliqué or embroidered design, the wadding which is used for adding padding and a backing which is usually a cotton fabric to help hold the wadding in place. In this section we will show you the fundamentals of quilting and the different techniques you can apply.
