Patchwork – materials for creative patching, quilting & decorations
Patchwork was originally done just to mend fabrics. It refers to a technique in which pieces of fabric are sewn together to form a large surface of geometric patterns. Patchwork is made up of three layers of textiles: the patchwork top with the patchwork pattern, the filling and the back side. Patchwork pieces have to be quilted so that the individual layers won’t shift during use or when being washed. However, quilts are also used as decoration, in which case the art lies in creating various vivid patterns out of these three layers.
