This past Saturday I took an all-day quilt class called “Quilt ‘Till You Wilt”. French Roses, the pattern designed by Heather French featured raw-edge machine appliqued roses.
Here’s Georgi, a member of our guild who taught the class with her two samples, one full size and another miniature version. Aren’t they both gorgeous?
Below are pictures of my quilt in process which I’m making using fusible web without raw edges.
I’ll stitch down my edges using my favorite decorative blanket stitch.
I cut out rose petals in four sizes from each of 9 different pink and green fabrics. Then I mixed them up to make each flower.
I ironed each flower to a different 9 1/2″ cream background square, ready to stitch!
Here are some pictures from the class. It was “sew” fun to see other student’s fabric choices.
Pattern designer Heather French popped in to say hello during the class and to show samples of some of her other work and patterns using the same idea.
Georgi was a wonderful teacher and full of great ideas for the class. Teacher’s pet Delores is one of the most enthusiastic quilters I know, appropriately wearing her “Quilt Till you Wilt” T-Shirt! It was a fabulous day!
