Crazy Patchwork Quilt as you go Class with Sarah Hooker
CRAZY QUILT AS YOU GO CLASS

If you love playing with fabrics and embroidery this project is an Indulgence in both.
A variety of fabrics are pieced by hand or machine into small hexagon or square panels.
Use fabrics from a scrap bag or select a range that's inspired by a feature fabric or collection. Cottons, silks, ties, Japanese fabrics, trims, braids and a feature fabric make up the sample panels.
Some fabrics are left whole while others are pieced using wedges, stripes and random crazy patchwork.
Once the fabric is put together by hand or machine, seams are embellished with a myriad of easy hand embroidery stitches used simply or mixed in combinations.
Play with colour mixes, using tone on tone, contrasting colours or experiment with a monotone palette. Each hexagon or square panel is like a small complete project on its own so there's room to try lots of ideas within your project or select a simple theme and carry it right through.
As stitching is complete each hexagon or square panel is padded, backed and bound as you go. This can be done by hand or machine. Final construction is just stitching all the finished panels together to make a complete throw, quilt or bag.

You will also need to cut some strips at home and assemble at least a few of the stripped sections for the second half day. During the second half day we will discuss which other applique sections may be required and try out several layout with your completed sections.

Millefiori Cobweb Quilt
MILLEFIORI – THE COBWEB QUILT CLASS

For beginners. Cobweb quilts are fascinating and fun to make. They are great for using up scraps. This quilt has dominant whole cobwebs and smaller secondary cobwebs behind the main ones. This creates an optical illusion of depth and movement. The sample colours were reds, greens, yellows, blues & turquoises and it has light and dark versions of each of those colours to give good contrast between the strips. The technique we will use in class is foundation piecing on freezer paper, which creates very accurate cobwebs.

Small Scenes
SMALL SCENES CLASS

For all levels. In this workshop you will learn how to transform your photos or pictures of landscapes into little fabric quilts. We will be working in sizes ranging from A3 down to about large postcard size. We will discuss colours, perspective, depth of field, methods of stitching, etc. You will also learn how to enlarge pictures without the use of a photocopier. (Even if you can’t draw!) You will choose a size to work in then create 3 or 4 tiny landscapes using the same photo but making use of a variety of fabrics. You will see how different fabrics change depth of field, perspective and mood.
We will provide pictures of the type of fabric that would be suitable with the class requirements. If you dye your own fabric you may wish to use some of those.
You will be able to sew these landscapes either by hand or by machine (machine is faster!).
There will be some homework between the classes.

Sundress Quilt Class
SUNDRESS QUILT CLASS

For all levels. This quilt is constructed of small sundress blocks approximately 5 x 7 inches (12.5 x 18 cm). The sundresses are either plain or decorated in a variety of way, with lace, ribbons or rickrack. The quilt may be made in a variety of sizes, whatever suits your needs. I have made my tiny wallhanging of Liberty Tana Lawn and am making a bed size quilt in similar colours and fabric as well. But ordinary, lightweight patchwork cottons or batiks can be used as well. The important thing is to keep the prints in scale with the tiny sundresses if possible, although some big prints will lend themselves well too. This is a machine class.
