Upcoming Workshops and Special Events VIA ZOOM (and some in person)
Irene Blanck – Matilda
July 17 – 6pm – 9pm
Irene got the inspiration for MATILDA whilst on her (almost) daily walk and wanted to design a quilt that had simple flowers.
This virtual workshop will teach you the basics for needle-turn applique. Straight line applique, curves, points in leaves, circles and a hilarious way of making stems. Irene says “for me, needle-turn applique must be fun – it does not have to be accurate – our “perceived” mistakes are all part of the charm of our quilts”.
This is an interactive workshop where Irene explains and demonstrates each step in detail then gives you time to complete that step, before continuing to the next step.
As Irene will be zooming in from Australia with a 14 hr time difference the class will take place on Saturday July 17 from 6pm – 9 pm and will cost $40. You will also need to purchase the pattern from : focusonquilts.com.au. Be sure to purchase the US pdf version of the pattern as mail from Australia is extremely slow at the moment and probably won’t arrive until after the class.
To register for the workshop please download and complete the registration form from the website before mailing it together with your check, payable to TQG, to Debby Coleman.
