Hawaiian Applique Without The 'A Word'

Ever want to own a quilted Hawaiian Appliqué but don’t do the “A’ word… or even if you do appliqué, don’t want to spend the amount of time it takes to complete a complicated design such as this.  My very first quilt ever was a hand appliqué, hand quilted pillow that took several weeks.  Forget that!  For this class, you may create whatever color faux appliqué you like. (I’ll bring a variety of colors)  You will use a pattern laid underneath your cotton fabric as a guide to paint your entire appliqué in class using 1 bottle of Tsukineko fabric ink and one same color matching marker. Bottom line, this project is both economic AND fast !!!!   Absolutely anyone can do this!     Project size varies in 3 and  6 hr class versions. 

 Standard Student Supply List: 
a) A smooth surface white trash bag ( 13 gal. kitchen can size is fine), b) A few paper towels in case of a rare spill,c) Small amount of painters or masking tape
 A Kit will  include  :
 Kit includes: Hawaiian Appliqué Pattern, One bottle of pigment ink, Matching fabric marker, One ink applicator, Paintable sateen fabric, Class instructions.  Option choices in class: red, blue, green, purple, or black applique color scheme. 

Quilters Filling Station

 Quilter's Filling Station : Attend this class and you’ll leave with confidence and quilting motif samples to use in your work at home.  We’ll look at and create in free motion  3 ‘types of motifs: ones that stabilize, harmonize, and  even ‘MOVE’ your eyes on your quilt tops. You’ll create a sampler piece of stitched motifs of each type and that sampler can serve as your own quick reference library OR you can approach it as a standalone machine quilted art piece.  You’ll grow through FREEDOM to fill and learn in the doing!!.  Machines  are sometimes  provided at large venues as will be outlined in venue description/supply list info. Guild venues will require students to bring their machine to class.   There will be a small  material fee for a Quilting Art handout of  sample textures and fillers. This is designed for fairly new to intermediate  quilters.) At least some experience with free motion quilting advised.     3 or 6 hrs class as chosen by venue
