About This Workshop
Organic Appliqué is all about making quilts that share your personal voice while taking control of creativity! I am passionate about working with the tried and true structures of traditional quilts but bringing them forward using the colourful, exciting fabrics available today. I have often thought that antique quilts would look very different if the quilting sisters of yesterday had our fabrics!
This workshop focuses on understanding how fabric will perform. We will consider contrast as a way to create line and shape as well as for letting the fabric do the work with a view to creating interest in appliqué! We will build confident pathways to exploring design options and construction methods for making unique projects.
The quilt presented is a basic Court House Steps medallion with surrounding organic appliqué borders. Simple appliqué techniques open the door to decorating the spaces of structure in our quilts and allowing our creative juices to flow! Use the layout provided or create your own as we go. Colour sets the mood but the personalised appliqué fills the spaces with fun!
You will enjoy this class if you are looking to take control of your creative process. Beginners will be able to achieve exciting results and experienced quilters will be able to take control of their creative ideas with confidence. All intentions are welcome!
*My book, Organic Appliqué is a recommended but not required for the class.
