Over the past few months, I’ve had a numerous amount of interest and requests to make a video tutorial showing how I make the Union Jack block… The first time I made this block I had just learnt how to Foundation Paper-Piece and was absolutely daunted by all of the different pieces and angles I […]

If only I could’ve caught it and made it go ‘POP in the microwave’! TAFE (Art School) started last week and it has been full on, hectic, challenging and fun. The days are […]
