Session B Classes
Wed - Thurs, Sept 6 - 7, 2023
Learn the technique of Broderie Perse to create stunning designs that will enhance any quilt. This technique is often seen in antique quilts from the 1800s using motifs from different floral fabrics to make flower arrangements such as vases of flowers and floral wreaths and sprays. Fabrics are cut up and rearranged to create a new design which is then appliquéd onto a background fabric. This often becomes the focal point of a quilt and makes a great centre block in a medallion quilt; however, it can also enhance any block to individualise it and make it more special.
Recreate one of Michelle’s blocks or use one as inspiration for your own design.
