As a self-professed “junker,” I have a very hard time passing up unfinished handmade projects when I see them. A few years ago I came across a stack of quilt blocks that were never made into a quilt. They were beautifully tattered and worn and my heart wondered about the hands that crafted them. Inspiration struck and I stenciled on one and then stitched it. I. Love. It. and I want to share my process with you, too.
I’ll show you how to stencil on fabric, talk about color choices, demonstrate a number of embroidery stitches and walk you through how I like to embellish at the end of my projects. You’ll leave with a start on a great project that you could turn into a pillow, journal cover, wall hanging, or who knows where your imagination will take you!
Everything is supplied for this workshop and no experience is necessary. Spend a relaxing Saturday morning in the Ephemera Paducah studio at the end of AQS QuiltWEEK. The minimum age to participate is 14.
