We are delighted to announce that Irene Blanck of 'Focus on Quilts' is coming back to Perth to run two quilt-making workshops here at Calico and Ivy on the 27th and 28th July. Yay!
Irene is well known for her needle-turn applique and beautiful quilt designs which she has taught across Australia, Norway, the Netherlands and many other countries! In 2015, Irene released her Quiltmania Book, "Focus on Applique" which featured some beautiful quilts, including Auntie Green's Garden, Eva Grace and Mosaics to name a few.
The Clamshells quilt would have to be my personal favourite quilt and Irene has a really different, simple and easy way of constructing clamshells - no papers, no backing fabric, no grid... so simple!
Date: Saturday 27th July 2019
Time: From: 09:30 to 3:30pm
Cost: $120 which includes tuition, light lunch and morning and afternoon tea plus plenty of tea and coffee. Yum!
You can achieve many different looks for your Clamshell quilt: You can carefully select a colour/fabric theme, mix your fabric with a plain colour in between rows or be completely random by using your colourful stash.
Clamshells quilt pattern (available in store)
General sewing tools such as scissors, needles, thread, etc.
Roxanne glue (available in store)
Purchase some fabric from us or bring some of your fabric stash on the day.

Yours in clamshells...... (yay!)
