Wed - Thu
Reversible Table Topper,using the pattern Radiance, Medallion V pattern by Eye of the Beholder Quilts - Margaret Brewster Willingham, www.eobquiltdesign.com
Myra has a unique method to share with you! What a beautiful design and you can make it your own! Students will trace design (36x36”) on to top fabric using pattern. Using fabric provided in kit, students will make quilt sandwich without batting. Kit will contain fabric lightly bonded to prevent shadowing. Students will then free motion sew or use a very narrow satin stitch over traced lines. Proper thread selection will be discussed. Students will be able to choose thread from selection provided by teacher and included in kit cost. After design has been completed, students will begin cutting out top layers to expose under layer on both sides of the quilt. We will discuss how to fix accidental cuts and how to use a permanent fabric glue. Final quilting motifs will be discussed.
It is recommend that students have taken a beginner “introduction to free motion applique class “ if they aren’t familiar with this method.
