Perfect for learning Kim's invisible appliqué method, this striking quilt in a palette of richly burnished colors is ideal for practicing and honing your new-found skills. A fun "hands on" workshop from start to finish, we'll spend our time together working with a variety of shapes from big, bold blossoms to gently curved vines of bitgtersweet berries. Discover just how easy it can be to prepare machine-stitched appliqués that have the appearance of being hand sewn, and conquer your fear of the "A" word! Because wool appliqué and invisible machine appliqué are so completely different, the two workshop versions of this design are offered separately and cannot be combined into one class. All skill levels. Kim's book, Simple Graces, is required.

110 WACKY SCRAPPY WEDGES: BASKETS, BORDERS & MORE - Nancy Bills

 
   
Throw the rules out the window and don't worry about whether fabrics match! This class teaches a new technique to make all types of shapes, borders, sashings, etc., from scraps (or from yardage if you're not a scrap saver) and allows you to become your own pattern designer. It's fun and almost impossible to make a mistake. Many of Nancy's "mistakes" have become great new ideas! In class, students will focus on making baskets, borders, sashings, and super-simple pieced basket handles (that can be used for almost any type of basket) from the wedges - BUT - Nancy will also show her students a number of additional options for the technique, including crazy pieced flying geese made without foundations. So, you may want to bring everything but the kitchen sink just in case! All skill levels.
