Classes

My classes

  • All classes are machine stitched
  • The techniques used in each quilt are slightly different, depending on the design
  • The techniques are not difficult, if you can cut out and sew, you can make these quilts.

  • Using fusible techniques, you will “create” a new fabric.
    Then you will cut the new fabric into shapes to make the design.
    Back the shapes with black (or a colour of your choice), and stitch the quilt using straight line stitching.

This can be a no sew class, relax and enjoy the creative process and complete the quilting at home, quilting takes approximately one hour.
This project is suitable for all levels of experience, two day class.
65 x 68 cm (25 x 27”)

Pot of Pansies

Medieval Journeys

MedievalJourney1

  • This quilt marks a departure from my flower quilts.
    Scraps of organza, silk, velvet, gold Lame and gold net are combined to create an antique look inspired by medieval book covers.
    You will be able to use your special fabrics to create a piece which is unique to you. I used some silk and velvet, but mainly cotton fabric with organza, cord, purchased trims and some gold lame’.
    The techniques used are quite simple, with spectacular results! Everyone can make this quilt.

Surface Edged Flowers

  • Create a rich embellished surface, with use of special fabrics such as silk and satin, and beading and lots of machine stitching with metallic threads.
    The flowers and leaves “float” on a previously quilted surface.
    See also the other quilt in this section for a more modern twist.
    You will be able to choose between these two quilt styles in your class.
    You will not complete a whole quilt in this class but will learn the techniques used. Your quilt will be unique!

This project is suitable for all levels of experience, two day class.

  • Using bright fabrics and a whole cloth background, you will quickly achieve a lovely wall hanging.
    The quilt is made using fusible techniques.
    The simple quilting, done with the walking foot, also acts as the stitching on the appliqué, eliminating the need to stitch around each piece.
    This could be a no sewing class, relax and enjoy the creative process and complete the quilting at home.

Suitable for everyone, this could be a one day class, and could also be a two day class.
