Big Patch to Little Patch

I've been thinking about making smaller pieces of patchwork for a while now. I enjoyed making the denim crazy patchwork quilt (see previous post), but man, it was hard work on my neck and shoulders! So I looked into miniature patch working techniques on good old You Tube and came across a brilliant technique that enables you to sew up patchwork in no time at all. I tried it in some printed cottons and here are the results……

First I attached the patches to fusible interfacing.

Next I stitched one set of seams,

then I stitched the remaining seams.

Here's the finished result!
Mmmmm I wonder if it would work with denim?
