Poppies Quilt Workshop with Mary Transom - 17 & 18 June

Gorgeous poppies in a garden setting. The poppies are machine embroidered on a vilene base before being added to the whole cloth background. You can use a blanket stitch, satin stitch, or free machining to attach the flowers and leaves to the background. Beads can then be added to the centres of the flowers, adding a special touch to the quilt especially when shown in a lighted room. The sawtooth border is appliqued, not pieced, to the border strips. If you wish, you can have fun embellishing your border with beading and metallic threads.
This two day workshop is at Epping Creative Centre on Sunday and Monday 17 and 18 June 2007. It is suitable for all levels. Some experience with free machine stitching, while not essential, would be helpful.

Workshops are available only to current financial members of the Guild and you must complete and lodge a workshop booking form.
