Japanese patchwork craft - get together and learn.
Having learned how to make Japanese folded patchwork, at a West Kent Day School,

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. -

I imagine this was idle chatter rather than a definite plan, but who knows - we shall see.
