Irene Blank Workshop 1: Clamshell Quilt - Thursday 19th July 2018


The name Irene Blanck is synonymous with intricate quilts, so beautifully appliqued and constructed.    Her book, Focus on Applique released by Quiltmania in 2015 has been so popular and showcases all her divine quilts.

Irene has been teaching for many years, across many miles, including The Netherlands, Norway, France as well as travelling around within Australia. She is highly respected and sought after.   

We are so lucky to be able to arrange for her to come and teach at Calico and Ivy and encourage you to book your spot to learn from such a talented teacher. 

In her first workshop, Irene will be teaching Clamshells: seriously classic and such a fun quilt to make.  Clamshell quilts are so versatile, you can either use your stash to achieve a myriad of colours or interact a chosen range of colours to work in with a low volume fabric.    They look great either way and you can see a few versions of Irene's quilts attached below to give you an idea of the different impact each quilt has.
