The original sew-along is over, but you can still join the fun. Make the pattern and check out the Facebook group to see what others have made.
Make a maple leaf window hanging.
This window hanging is made with reversible patchwork. The seams are totally finished on both sides, so there are no raw edges exposed. In the sunlight, it glows like stained glass.
When is the sew-along?
We will make our window hangings in June 2021. They will be ready to hang by Canada Day.
If you missed these dates, you can always make one to hang in the fall.

Where can I get the pattern?

What if I need more help?
This is not quilting, it is a different patchwork technique. If it is your first project, you might need more help.
There are two options that will take you step by step through the whole process. You can take the online course at your own pace or take a live workshop.
Wait, did you say “prizes”?
NOTE: As of July 2021, prizes have already been awarded.
How big is the hanging?
What fabric is used?
Any fabric can be used, but batik fabric gives it the stained glass glow.
How long will it take to make?
It will probably take a beginner between 5-8 hours.
What is the technique?
It uses modern pojagi, a reversible patchwork seam technique.
