Join Pat as we play with quilt designs, coloring book pages, and colored pencils. The latest craze in relaxation is coloring and we’ll take quiltmaking to the next step by adding color with pencils to our art quilts. Choose your motif and fill it with quilted designs to color. Watercolor pencils blend with water to create more colors and effects. Some free-motion quilting experience would be helpful. The kit includes the design, fill motifs, colored pencils, sealing medium, batting, and fabrics for the top, backing, and practice. This workshop gives you lots of ideas for quilting designs and a whole new look for your quilts.

Play with 30’s fabrics (or maybe your Nana collected Civil War prints) while assembling the center blocks. A bit of paper piecing will speed things along. Next, explore thread sketching for the embroidered flowers in each basket. Spend the afternoon learning machine turned edge appliqué for the borders which include lots of flowers and berries.
