    • Full materials list included in instructions
    • Detailed step-by-step instructions illustrated with close-up photographs and diagrams take you through each stage of these projects
    • The Union Jack design is foundation pieced to ensure accuracy
    • The rest of the quilt is made using simple patchwork - just squares, strips and half-square triangles - embellished with appliquéd stars
    • Appliqué shapes are provided full-size, ready to trace
    • Instructions are for raw-edge fusible-web appliqué stitched by machine, but they can be readily adapted to suit the appliqué method of your choice
    • Only small pieces of fabrics are needed for the patchwork, so raid your stash - the quilt centre can be made from 10in (layer cake) squares
    • The chiller bag is lined with Insulbrite batting to keep its contents cool
    • The extra-long wrap-around zipper makes it easy to access the bag's contents
    • Suitable for intermediate crafters who enjoy combining a number of different techniques
