Quilting & Applique Classes
Our Quilting and Applique Classes are ‘sew’ much fun, once you learn the basics your creations will be limitless! We focus mostly on machine quilting and applique during these classes. Applique layers fabric upon one another to create a scene, image or collage. It spans from youthful to funky to elegant and by using basic and decorative stitches, free motion quilting and stitch in the ditch techniques you can obtain any desired result. We like to think of these classes as a creative, crafty, expressive and fun style of sewing!

The powerful and peaceful unicorn has been a constant in folklore dating as far back as the fourth century. Intertwined in stories of travel, children’s books and whimsy the unicorns' mythical property is of purity and good, said to heal the sick and cure water.

We cover a lot in this five week course from working with standard quilting tools to focusing on conventional patchwork piecing techniques to practice working with rotary cutters and mats and so much more! We will also discuss different quilting techniques such as free-hand quilting and stitch-in-the-ditch.
Using fabric of your choice you will be cutting out and assembling 54 different pieces to create your unique unicorn. Finished size will be approximately 25x25" - perfect for a wall hanging or large throw pillow. In addition to the quilt block the pattern, includes directions for two different quilt sizes.
