Session B Classes
Fri - Sat, Sept 10 - 11, 2021
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.
