Folk Flower Block Class @ Village Haberdashery UK

Join me in London for this class!  I'll share how to use machine reverse appliqué to create this simple but stunning floral block that can be combined very specifically with others, or more sporadically with some solid blocks for a varied look. She also offers tips of scaling the block to suit each quilter's hopes for their finished design.   Visit Village Haberdashery to sign up!

Traveling Blooms Quilt @ Village Haberdashery UK

I designed this study in borders to feature my Floral Retrospective collection along with some choice pieces from her Loominous yarn dyed collections. This is a wonderful introduction to appliqué as well as a great refresher on half square triangles and other simple patchwork. Size and scale is easily customisable, the class it appropriate for all skill levels and a great stepping off point for variations.  It is going to be a great day!

Drawing on my tireless passion for handwork, I'll provide a survey of handwork details for quilt makers, including her hand quilting technique, several popular embroidery stitches to try on a sampler, and embellishment. With several diverse examples of her own explorations to share, Anna Maria will demonstrate a variety of stitch styles and show you how to look at fabric and materials in a new way.
