I got the chance to test out one of our brand new kits from The New Craft House. I’m a big fan crafts I can do in front of the TV or listening to an audio-book. I listened to the wonderful Costa prize winner The Lie Tree whilst making this beautiful Hexi Cushion.
The kit is a great introduction to English Paper Piecing, a technique using fabric wrapped around paper patterns, it’s a terrific skill and helps to create beautiful and precise patterns for quilting of cushions.
The kit comes with 22 designer quilting cottons 22 paper templates, and everything else you need to complete a cushion. All you need to add is a cushion pad insert.
After only a couple of hand cramps I finished all the Hexie’s and trimmed them down to the right size. The kit gives you backing fabric too, and gives instructions on how to make an envelope cushion cover.
I highly reccomend this kit, it’s a great introduction to quilting. I can’t wait to try out more of our fancy new kkits
