3 Saturdays – January 14, 21, and 28 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm

Learn to make a landscape art quilt using raw edge appliqué.  During the workshop we’ll discuss and practice making a pattern, using double-sided fusible adhesive, fabric selection, layering, and various stitching techniques.

Experienced landscape quilters will receive guidance while working on a project of their choice.   Those new to landscape quilting will be encouraged to work on a 12 inch square quilt of a house.  A basic pattern will be provided or participants can bring an appropriately sized sketch/ large photograph of their own home.  Participants will be encouraged to add their own original embellishments.

Some sewing experience is necessary.

Supplies:

  • Sewing machine in working order, owner’s manual
  • 14” square of muslin
  • Freezer paper (available in the grocery store)
  • 1 yd. of Heat ‘N Bond, Steam a Seam, or Wonder Under double-sided fusible adhesive (I like Heat ‘N Bond)
  • Basic sewing supplies – scissors, pins, ruler, seam ripper, fabric marking pencil
  • Assorted spools of thread that match your fabrics (ie. several shades of green, blue, gray, brown, house color, white & black)
  • Bobbin threaded with white thread
  • Empty paper towel tube (optional) to roll and store quilt
  • Fabric – multiple pieces and small scraps of colors needed for your design (tone on tone works well)
