Illustrative Quilting.

One Day Class.


For all levels of experience.





You will learn to draw on fabric and to draw with the sewing machine.
In this class you will trace the apple tree image onto fabric, color it and quilt it in this amazing way.   
With careful preparation you will achieve this effect.
I will guide you through the correct techniques of Drapplique… Drawing/applique.
You will learn a great deal about quilting and go home with a wonderful small quilt.  
Trust me, this is a technique you will use in many more of your quilts.











Requirements:-


I will ask students to bring 
1 piece of thin cotton batting 20”  X 12”
1 piece of good quality fabric 20” X 12”  (this if for the backing of your quilt)
20” X 12” Cream fabric  for the top of the quilt. You need to be able to see the pattern through the fabric because you are going to trace it so portable light box would be an advantage.
