I just love teaching this class. Each student gets to make their own version of this flower basket and I am always impressed with the cool variations we get during class.
Each student comes with a pre-appliqued piece from a kit I send them and then we spend the day making each piece unique. We start by writing in our journals then putting our ideas into action.
We use many embellishment ribbons, beads and threads. Learn many different stitches and share new ideas.
One of the fun techniques that I love is couching and you can see from these pieces that wonderful fibers were used to enhance the block.
Hand dyed wool is a fabulous medium. It is so easy to cut into different shapes and then stack to form dimensional pieces. It is also like butter to needle.
