Term 1 is finishing shortly so I have decided what my new classes for this term are going to be. A couple of these are new classes and some are quilts I made a few years ago but thought maybe needed to be brought back again.
This Thursday night 26th March 6:30- 9:30pm NZ$22.50
Applique Garden Quilt
I created a design that uses a variety of flower shapes which you can set out in any way you like. I have made this a tall garden across a piece that is approximately 70cm x 115cm. You can make a wall hanging or a bed quilt - your choice, also how many flowers you have etc are all your choice. This is your garden to design.
I have taught this class a couple of times and the ladies have loved making these easy handbags using the vinyl mesh. It comes in so many different colours and is very easy to sew.
Then every 3rd Tuesday of the month through to November.
Learn how to make small sized quilts that show you lots of different techniques. Each quilt will be made in the night and you may even quilt it. See how easy it is to machine quilt something this size, great practice for your machine quilting. If you like the design then you can sew a bigger version. Also great for using up your scraps
The quilt we are making in April is -
This is a quilt I designed a few years ago. It has no books but you can add some, but I liked the jars full of things for boys and it has an aquarium and a terrarium complete with escaped critters. Learn to make a few blocks on the first night and then make more in your own time and bring the top back to learn how to quilt or if you haven't had time, continue with your blocks.
Strata Quilt Wednesday 13th & 27th May 7-9pm NZ$25
Learn how to cut and sew gentle curves in this strata quilt, then how to applique circles over the top. A variety of methods for the applique will be shown. Learn how to cut and piece the background at the first lesson and continue making these at home. Then in the second lesson learn how to sew on the appliques (and the borders if you haven't already done those)
This is an easy Snowball block which Dianne will show you how to make, then you can complete all the blocks you require at home. Good big size blocks for the children to play I Spy with.
I love adding text to my quilts and fabrics. Bring a finished quilt along and/or some fabric and I'll show you how to add your text to either. Bring along the words and see what we can create for you.
Here are 2 examples of what I have made -
