Please join us for Anna Maria’s Saturday workshop, when we will be making her Plot Twist quilt, built on a wide striped foundation that continues to change its tune as a twisting, flowering vine passes through it. The structure of this design employs simple patchwork but a clever sequence of building blooms invites variety and interest and is very simple to scale larger or smaller. As the focus is on the applique, Anna Maria will share a few approaches and considerations when preparing shapes for machine & hand applique. The pattern offers notes for creating multiple sizes – baby – twin/full – queen/king- all with an (optional) unexpected interjection of a sawtooth strip ripping through the background. Techniques you will learn in this class include fabric selection, improvisational applique, hand needle turn applique, raw edge machine applique, curved bias strip applique, compositional planning and layout, and the use of mylar and acrylic templates for cutting and pressing applique. There are also several variations to choose from, as shown in the Supply list below.
Anna Maria will have a pop-up store at this workshop, including the In Bloom templates mentioned in the Supply List.
Please bring your sewing machine (with cords, foot pedal, presser feet, extension cord, etc) and all the usual supplies you bring to a workshop (thread, scissors, cutting mat, rulers, rotary cutter, etc).
