Led by Helene Knott
In this class, you will learn the principles of creating beautiful seascape quilts using a blending of strip piecing and appliqué. The appliqué can be rendered by hand, raw-edged machine, fused or a combination of methods; the water, sand and sky are rendered in strip piecing. You can purchase a pattern for an Oregon Seascape from the instructor. Or design your own seascape. If you design your own, I recommend keeping your quilt a manageable size – no larger than about 40" wide for a first time project. The first class session covers the process of creating effective landscapes through the use of appropriate fabrics and choosing the particular appliqué methods you wish to use. A landscape fabric selection guide is available at http://heleneknott.com/pdf/01.pdf in a PDF format that can be downloaded and printed to help you make your fabric selections. Skill Level: Confident Beginner and up.
