Patchwork in practice: In a nutshell, it boils down to cutting fabrics in a symmetrical or asymmetrical way. The classic technique has three layers: the scraps called the top, the filling used to give it volume, and finally the lining, which is the finishing fabric. When a sewing machine is used, the layers are joined by stitching, called a quilt. The quilts are continuous designs made with the machine and can be made in various formats, such as hearts, stars, arabesques, etc. There are also patchwork blocks, which are the joining of fabrics to form new patterns, and appliqu├ęs, which are fabrics applied under the base fabric. Origin of patchwork: It is estimated that the technique began in 3400 B.C., when in ancient Egypt, the pharaohs dressed themselves with pieces made from leftover fabrics. This became a fundamental tool in war, as soldiers used the pieces created under their armor.

Layers – In general, the pieces made with patchwork are usually made with three layers: the top, the filling, and the lining. These layers of material are layered and joined together to create a single object. The top is the upper part of the piece. It is made by sewing scraps of material together, in order to create a geometric figure, depending on the craftsman’s objective. The filling, in turn, is the material that brings volume and dimension to the piece. For this, the material used is usually acrylic blanket. The lining, on the other hand, is the material made of fabric, which is inserted in the bottom of the piece and has the purpose of providing an attractive finish, i.e., more aesthetically pleasing. If these layers are joined by stitching, the technique is called quilting. This is a continuous design formed with stitches and usually requires the use of a sewing machine.
