Lecture: THE EVOLUTION OF A QUILTMAKER The lecture (approximately one hour slide lecture) includes images of quilts that I have made from the first pathetic attempt to my most recent prize winning quilts.
Workshop 1: ART NOUVEAU (Rhapsody in Bloom) I've enjoyed working with art nouveau designs because of the graceful, flowing lines and interpretation of forms derived from nature.
Workshop 2: DAFFODIL (Take-Away Applique) From a 17th century embroidery, this quaint daffodil pattern comes alive and is a cinch to stitch using the "take-away applique" method for pattern placement.
Workshop 3: EMBROIDERED APPLIQUE One bird has been embroidered; one has not. See the difference! Suzanne makes extensive use of embroidery to embelish her award-winning quilts.
Workshop 4: A Frog in My Garden Fine-tune your needle-turn applique skills with focus on individual attention while stitching a zany frog.
Workshop 5: HAND QUILTING WITHOUT A FRAME OR A HOOP YES, it is possible to hand quilt without a frame or a hoop! This particular method is MUCH LESS STRESSFUL ON JOINTS and allows more comfortable sitting positions.
Workshop 6: WACKY BIRD (Take-Away Applique) Have you ever wondered how to applique a multi-pieced pattern without marking the background or using transparent overlays?
