Razzle Dazzle Your Borders

September 16, 2023 at 1:00:00 AM

½ day Lecture style Workshop - In person at TBD. 

Interactive discussion-style lecture.

Learn to add dynamic visual interest and excitement to your borders. What inspires border designs? How can you be more original?
Let's do more than frame or enlarge those quilt tops. Let's put some pizzazz into your that final piece!

The quilt is done. Do your borders enhance the “ Visual Impact” of your quilts? This 1/2 day class gets rave reviews, “my head was spinning with ideas when I left”. Kathy’s inter-active, discussion style lecture, will dazzle you with; multiple ideas, photos, design tips, and actual samples to help you choose the best style and size of border to razzle dazzle your own finish line. Multiple examples will be shown along with a discussion about basic construction.



Feathers are Flying

September 9, 2023 at 5:00:00 PM

Let’s make one of these beautiful Herons together. Learn the EASY, new Apliquick method of turned edges. This method is sweeping the appliqué world. Small, complex pieces are easy to turn with these tools from Spain. We will use special Apliquick interfacing for our template material. Edges will be swept over the interfacing and left in place, unlike freezer paper that has to be removed. You will love the extra loft and dimension this adds to each feather. Your beautiful birds will be made as free objects, ready to place on the background scene or a focal block of your new quilt. No need to have your background ready before class. Kathy will demonstrate shading with her optional fabric paint crayons. Expect to get a good portion of your Heron body completed. Finished quilt size: 22 x 29 for the full scene shown in the pattern.
