I am always looking for ideas for workshops/classes, but I only want to make things to teach that I really like. It was September last year when I showed the first couple of blocks HERE. The designs are based on the German paper cutting craft Scherenschnitte. You really have to work on your applique skills with this one. You get to do inner and outer curves, inner and outer points, and cut outs.
So it all came to a head this last week when I had to get some project ideas ready for the Victorian Quilters Guild. I have been invited to go to Melbourne in August to speak at their AGM, and do a workshop the next day. Ok, time to get cracking on this one! The border?? I woke up around 5am one day thinking I would do a machine piece zig zag border. Got the books out for ideas, but changed my mind. No it had to be appliqued.......and following in the paper cutting idea.
I did two opposites at a time, then joined them in the corners with a neat stitch overlapping.
If you are a member of the Vic Quilters Guild I will be there in August and hope to meet some of you.
