Garden Windows – Nature Scrolls

August 5, 2023 at 5:00:00 PM

Leaves and blossoms swirl in through an open window. Flowering branches peek through and wander in. These quilts are fun, easy to make and celebrate the beauties of nature; they can be embellished if you wish. In this class you will create a wall hanging with your own window into a seasonal garden of your choosing with appropriate leaves, branches and/or flowers depending on what season you choose. The finished size of the quilt is either 9”x 20” or a larger 13”x 27” version, you can also design your own scroll to whatever size you wish if you prefer. There will be several patterns for leaves, branches and flowers supplied in the class for those not wishing to design their own or you may opt to use a floral print in a ‘Broiderie Perse’ technique. Fusing or using a nifty raw-edged machine appliqué technique you will learn in the class will apply these leaves or flowers or they may be hand appliquéd if desired.



Landscape Beyond Borders

August 4, 2023 at 5:00:00 PM

This landscape class explores a construction technique that gives a landscape a little more depth by bringing layers of it out of the center and into the border. There are two patterns to choose from, both featuring our lovely Oregon coast. The wall hanging will finish at about 14”x 20” or larger (depending on how many layers and borders you decide to use). Help will be provided in selecting your fabrics and choosing a method of appliqué suited to your individual skills. Hand and fused appliqué will be covered as well as a wonderful easy raw–edge machine technique that is superb to use on trees and foliage (pattern fee). Skill Level: Confident Beginner (fusing recommended) and up

Students can choose between the following patterns (additional patterns may be available by time of class).
