Whatnot workshop

A great day was had by all, there were nine of us, this is what we where making this is Stuarts sample.

It folds up into a square, by the end of the workshop we had all mastered mitred corners on the binding, 

This is my fabric once cut out, this my first time using adhesive spay to cut out all the layers together,

Here are two of my components finished two more to finish hand stitching, we learn loads today off Stuart, made my first covered button, found out the notches on the quilting foot are a 1/4 inch so can assist with measuring while you stitch.
