Join us for a two day workshop with Leslie Forbes using raw edge techniques and misty-fuse, along with exploring the use of value to bring a floral or floral grouping to life!    Take one of your favourite colour photos, enlarge it to 22” x 22” or a variation of this (easy to do at your local Staples shop), print another copy in black and white to help with seeing value, and before you know it you will have created a beautiful and dimensional quilt.   This could be done in cotton or silk. Leslie’s completed version was part of the Show and Tell items that were presented at our October guild meeting and it also will be at our Workshops table for viewing at our February guild meeting.   Come take a look up close and check out the supply list, which will be available for those who have registered.

This design grew out of my experience making many purses, bags and totes designed by others.  I wanted a stylish every-day bag that didn’t have a lot of complicated hardware, closures or heavy structure; one that could accommodate a few extra things that I’d need for traveling or hold a few purchases made throughout the day. It is the perfect pattern for a sewist looking to learn new bag-making skills.  The bag is constructed from two outer fabrics; pair a few cotton canvas or home-décor print on the upper level with cork, waved canvas, lightweight leather or vinyl on the lower level.

Skills to learn; zipper window, sewing with heavy materials like cork, leather, waxed canvas or vinyl, installing rivets and magnetic snaps, top-stitching, boxing corners.

The supply list for Krista’s class will also be available at our February meeting.

Happy Quilting,
Susan and Helen
