Machine Quilting and free Machine Applique.

These two classes can be combined to make one class

Machine Quilting

Beginner-intermediate, 1 day workshop

This is a one day workshop for those participants who want to be more adventurous with their machine quilting. We look at machine quilting as a decorative enhancement for your quilt. The methods explored are particularly effective for quilts employing areas of solid colour, landscape quilts and innovative quilts/wall hangings. You can bring quilts that need quilting for ideas on how to approach the quilting.

The aim is to create texture and to some extent embroidered effects.

A darning foot is essential for this workshop as well as the instruction booklet that comes with your machine.

Free machine Appliqué and Embroidery

Beginner to intermediate, 1 day workshop

This is a one day workshop exploring free machine appliqué (raw edge) and other free machine techniques to create texture and interest in your quilt. Participants will create several small appliquéd pieces which will incorporate machine appliqué.

A sewing machine with a darning foot is essential. An embroidery hoop would also be useful.

I can provide a kit which will make a small wall hanging of a banksia (the background will be the size of a fat quarter), with contrasting colour, vliesofix and water soluble plastic at a cost of 15 euros per participant. However some other fabric will also need to be brought.
