    Description

    Anna Maria Horner, Quilts In Bloom

    Friday, 17 August
    10am – 4pm

    Skill level: All levels

     

    Anna Maria will guide you through building modern bouquets using paper template shapes provided. Under guidance and with lots of inspiration you will be working using a design wall, composing a block, a mini quilt or the beginnings of a larger project. You will be sewing your pieces together as you go.

    Anna Maria will share several technique demos for machine applique, needle-turn applique and patchwork considerations for backgrounds and borders, so that by the end of the day you will be fully equipped to complete your project.

    This is a wonderful way to break free of traditional block by block patchwork, whilst still providing enough of a format to feel comfortable.

     

     


    Techniques Taught:

    • – Fabric selection
    • – Improvisational Patchwork
    • – Needle turn applique by hand & raw applique by machine
    • – Curved bias strip preparation, applique
    • – Template demos for cutting and pressing applique shapes
    • – Compositional planning and layout

     


    Class Requirements:

    • – At least 1.5m of Design Wall Flannel. We recommend Kaffe Fassett Design Wall Flannel which is grey in colour, with a grid. The grey colour is neutral so that the colours of your work are not competing with the background. The grid helps to be accurate and straight! Simply place your pieces onto the flannel and it’ll stick as you finish your design and move them as required, allowing you complete freedom in composition.
    • – At least a dozen or more floral prints (or a large cut of a single stunner floral) to create a variety of flower heads, in various styles. Prints that are fun for fussy cutting are particularly welcome
    • – A mix of 6-8 fat quarters that are tonal or evocative in nature to emulate leaves, stems. Plaids and stripes are really lovely cut on bias here to be used as stems
    • – Various larger cuts from a fat quarter to 1 yard of tonal fabrics, either pale or dark, solid or yarn dyed that allow the above fabrics to shine
    • – Bond-a-web, or steam-a-seam lite

     

    • – Bring your rotary cutting equipment
    • – Bring your sewing machine
    • – Bring your basic sewing kit (scissors, pins, needles, microstitch if you have one)
    • – Paper scissors
    • – Paper and pen for making notes
    • – Thread
    • – Bring your workshop iron and ironing mat if you have one, but again we have plenty of irons and ironing boards set up here (sometimes, people just like their own….)
