Japanese patchwork craft - get together and learn.

Having learned how to make  Japanese folded patchwork,  at a West Kent Day School, 
 (see previous Blog)
It was time for Margaret to pass on the skill.
Seven members JANE, SUE, JEAN, MARY, RITA, HILARY AND VAL 
 spent a happy two hours,  cutting,  ironing and stitching.  
It is a good craft, one square can become a coaster,  a Christmas decoration or a Christmas Card,  
5 can become a square box, and  12 - 16 can become a cushion cover. 

 Each of the seven chose a different central fabric and these were the results.  
 Members went home with the fabric to create their own masterpiece.  - 
One among us suggested making a kingsize bed cover - 
I imagine this was idle chatter rather than a definite plan, but who knows - we shall see.
