April 13 (12:30-3:30) Fiesta Mexico, Block 3
See http://www.quiltinc.org/workshopinformation.htm#Apr for signup info and supply list
While sewing on this 10″ square block you will learn to sew smooth curves, sharp points and perfect circles. I will make your hand applique experience fun, easy and enjoyable.
During my visits to Mexico I was influenced by the designs and colors of their handmade pottery and the flora. I designed a large quilt called “Fiesta Mexico” and this is one of the blocks from that quilt. For this 3 hour workshop I added a wonderful border to the 10” square center block. In addition to learning to appliqué smooth curves and sharp points you will also learn to create and appliqué perfect ¼” strips and perfect circles of differing sizes. I will make your hand appliqué fun, easy and enjoyable.
PATTERN PLUS FEE: $24.00 (Does not include fabric) It does include the full Fiesta Mexico pattern (12 patterns in all), 2 sheets of Templar, a brush, the border pattern, glue pen and 5 pages of border instructions.
