Have you been frustrated trying to quilt that queen-size quilt on a small domestic machine?  In the last couple of decades, there has been an explosion of books and videos to help in our quest to complete larger quilts from start to finish.  In this "techniques" workshop, you will practice some methods that will cover the specifics of cutting, handling and maneuvering a quilt on a small machine.

Root and Fly
Teacher- Sylvia Benvie
Thursday, April 18th, 1-4pm
Saturday, April 20th, 10-1pm

This quilt gives the sense of flying geese, circling and taking off to the sky.  The illusion is accomplished using a simple appliqué technique to place the geese around the center piece. The original pattern is a full size quilt (72"X84"), but can be scaled down to half size for a striking wall hanging (36"X42").  Pick your favourite whimsical fabric and set those geese free to fly.

Class $30. See supply list for extra requirements.
