In this series of classes you will join Mo to learn tips and techniques for completing the entire Westalee Quilt as You Go Sampler by Leonie West, 25 blocks. If you have already begun your lessons with Mo you have a firm foundation on which to build your skills. What makes this series worthwhile is over 8 hours of video instruction that you will be able to use at home. In our weekly classes we will cover the basics of the block, perhaps you would prefer to do it on a sample piece or if you are confident directly on the fabric of your choice for the quilt. Another option is to draw it out in class rather than bringing your sewing machine. Contact the shop if this is your choice. In the end you will have all of the videos and handouts for each block and complete instructions on how to finish the quilt.
Traditional Hawaiian quilt techniques involve hand cutting hand needle turned applique and hand quilting. If you know me you know that my machine was purchased to eliminate as much hand work as possible, so in this class we will be using machines to cut as well as sew. Come experience the Accuquilt Studio cutting system. And learn about fusible applique and machine techniques for finishing the applique. We will cover different stitches and stabilizers, to get the look you're after.
There's a whole new world of little quilts out there and they are not new at all, they're vintage. Preserve a cherished heirloom handkerchief and learn how to quilt with your domestic sewing machine- no longarm required. You will learn precision machine stitching, free motion stippling, quilt binding and making a hanging sleeve. Patience however, is required. This mini quilt measures approximately 12" x 12" and we prepare it for your wire stand or for framing. The project uses modern tools and supplies- you supply the handkerchief or Patty has some available for sale. What a lovely way to show off a delicate reminder of days past.
