Session B Classes

Fri - Sat, Sept 10 - 11, 2021

Michelle Yeo

"Prairie Garden"

This block was inspired by an invitation to teach an applique technique class featuring some of the different applique techniques commonly used in quilts, such as needle-turn applique, blanket stitch and reverse applique.  The block features a pot of flowers and is very scrappy in nature using a variety of fabrics within the leaves and flowers to add to its charm.  The background of the block uses a patterned print to simulate a wallpaper backdrop to the pot of flowers.

This block will be set into a hexagon to become the centre of a larger medallion-type quilt.  The hexagon will be squared off to sit on-point and the setting triangles will feature appliqued birds and flowers.  A simple appliqued border will surround the quilt centre.  The quilt will be completed with pieced blocks set on point.
