Katie Chaplin's Folded patchwork

Some of the hexagons that were created using the Japanese folded patchwork technique.

Japanese homes are generally small so this technique was popular as backing and wadding are added during the making of each hexagon.

Katie Chaplin - Ceremonial Kimono

Friday 30th March saw Katie Chaplin give us a very interesting talk and demonstration of how a kimono is worn. The layers seemed to going on and on and on!
