Boyd's Barn Swallows

Boyd's Barn Swallows - WIN-PP-ADU-QLT-246

All levels; 2-day workshop, sewing machine and hand sewing, Fee $96
This quilt looks simple and why would you want to take a class with me? Well, here is the deal. This small but mighty quilt, 26 x 28 inches, is full of my favorite techniques from hand embroidery, simple patch work and hand applique. On day one, I will teach my favorite technique sewing the top together, followed by hand embroidering and embellishing it once it is sewn together. I will teach you how to trace your flower stems directly on the quilt top! By the end of day one, we should have the top complete, maybe only having a little bit of hand work to finish up. On day two, we will focus on the barn swallows, learning my Stitch and Flip method of applique and how to turn simple hand embroideries into a hand applique shape. Bring buttons to class to trade with others or pull out some heirloom buttons to complete this sweet quilt. I hope to send you home with only a little bit of work to do and with a project that just needs to be sent to the quilter. Pattern fee of $10.00 payable to instructor in class. Kit fee of $80.00 (optional and ordered a month prior to class) includes all materials except some buttons, vintage lace, and batting! Yes, the kit includes the backing and binding! See supply list for kit orders or substitutions.

My Secret Garden

My Secret Garden - WIN-PP-ADU-QLT-242

All Levels, 2-day, sewing machine required, supply list, Fee $146
Discover the art of sewing in our Garden Party Class! Unleash your creativity with a focus on design and technique. You will dive right into sewing in the very first hour. Kickstart your journey with the exquisite Dresden Plate motif, where you will create your unique "gardens." Craft as many blooming flowers as your heart desires, allowing you to use those special fabrics you've been stashing away, as each flower showcases a blend of four different fabrics. Once you have honed your floral design skills, explore the perfect backdrop. If you possess a neglected quilt top, it could be the ideal canvas for your garden, or for those who prefer a seamless background, perhaps a whole cloth option. Alternatively, create a contemporary, improvisational backdrop by sewing together your fabric scraps. As your garden flourishes, employ a 1-inch bias tape maker for crafting delicate stems, and use freezer paper to shape one-of-a-kind leaves for each flower. Delve into computer-aided leaf design for that flawless finishing touch. The true enchantment of this class lies in the exchange of ideas and designs among fellow students. Join our Garden Party Class and become a part of this collaborative, inspiring sewing journey.
