I was delighted to be asked by Sewing World magazine to submit another tutorial, after I had done one last year for their March issue. My latest step by step project is in this months issue, May, and it shows you how to make a patchwork throw out of furnishing fabrics. Although I used only my own fabrics for this project, any furnishing fabrics can be used, so it can be a cheap throw to make if you use up offcuts and remnants. I have used a large scale template for ease, and because furnishing fabrics are much thicker than cotton patchwork fabrics so intricate piecing isn’t so possible! I have also ‘quilted’ it with buttons, so it really is a simple project to make.
So if you fancy having a go at making this throw, then buy yourself the May issue of Sewing World….there is plenty of other great tutorials in there too so it’d be well worth it! And just to show you that this patchwork throw looks fantastic with fabrics other than my own, here is a photograph of another one I made a couple of years ago; the block pattern is slightly different, but very much in the spirit of the Sewing World tutorial. Have a go!
