Join us for this exciting NEW Two-Day "Wholecloth Quilt Design and Hands On Workshop" with Award-Winning Quilter and Handi Quilter Ambassador and Educator Lynda Jackson.
If you have ever wondered how show winners are produced and where the ideas come from and wish that you could do the same, then this class is for you.
This two-day design workshop covers everything from designing blocks and borders to designing and stitching wholecloths. A mixture of techniques will be covered giving lots of opportunities to find your creative niche.
On this workshop, which follows on well from the optional Ruler Workshop on the previous day, we look deeper into the design process using a variety of techniques. Whether you are looking to create a design for use within a pieced top or a wholecloth, this workshop will take you through the process from start to finish. Taking all you have learnt you will then mark out and stitch a small wholecloth, which you will then be able to take home with you.
With one machine per student you'll have lots of opportunity to practice your hands-on work under Lynda's expert guidance.
