I belong to a small quilt guild chapter and we've just begun a series of projects where each person teaches two techniques and the members then go home and try it. At the last meeting we learned a folded patchwork technique that I must admit seems quite odd to me. By the time you have the folded layers assembled, you are sewing through many, many layers. And for what? I wasn't too sure what the point was.
And I did play around a bit to try out different patterns.
And so this is what I came up with. I'll reserve judgment on the technique until my great nephew can road test the prototype.
