Our second workshop with Irene Blanck will be centred around applique skills. Irene is well known for her needle-turn applique and in this class, you will learn how to applique straight lines, stems, points and other applique techniques.
You will be able to choose to make Daisy Daze and Black Licorice, her two latest quilts which are both fabulous! Daisy Daze is simple and is a perfect project for beginner's. This design is a tad vintage and we love it!
The Black Licorice quilt has appliqued centred blocks on shot fabric, framed and surrounded by english paper pieced diamonds. Stunning and classic, this is a great quilt if you want to learn both applique and english paper piecing.
What a fabulous choice!
Your workshop details are as follows:
Date: Sunday 28th July 2018
Time: 10:00am to 4:00pm
Cost: $120 which includes tuition, light lunch, morning and afternoon tea + tea/coffee.
Being an accomplished quilt maker, Irene knows that many people can be very hesitate about choosing fabric. She loves this aspect of designing and tries to instil confidence in her students about choosing colour - and particularly NOT to stress with this process.
