New Class At Pioneer Patchwork

I have arranged some additional dates for classes at Pioneer Patchwork at Narellan for the rest of this year.  These workshops will take place on Tuesdays from 10am to 4pm.

Whack and Stack Quilts: Tuesdays 8 October and 
3 December, 2013

You will have the choice of making one of three different designs in this class.  All quilts are made by cutting repeats of fabric and stacking them in a pile and cutting different shapes to create a myriad of spectacular designs.

The first is called "Millefiori".  This quilt contains blocks constructed of 60 degree triangles joined to make hexagon shapes.  The border includes smaller hexagon blocks and detailed piecing.


The second one is called "Fandango".  It includes whack and stack circles and some foundation piecing of the spikes. (Need a better photo)

The third option is called "Rococo".  We cut diamonds from the stacked fabric to create Le Moyne Star blocks:

Foundation Piecing Workshops: Tuesdays 
24 September, 22 October, 19 November and 
17 December, 2013

You can choose to make a quilt from a number of designs I have created using paper foundation piecing techniques:

"Aura": made of New York Beauty blocks.  The batik fabrics are a departure for me, but look I can do it.

"The Way Ahead": featuring two different large compass blocks surrounded by circular flying geese and set with more flying geese.

"Ashbourne Mill": featuring Dusty Miller blocks with template work and more flying geese, of course!

"Cherry Ripe" with its centre pineapple block and detailed piecing with room for lovely quilting.

"Spikes and Specks": lots of yummy spikey blocks and machine applique:

"Paradise": a smaller quilt featuring a centre large compass block and machine applique:

I hope you can join me at some of these workshops.
