48 1/2" Square Quilt
Leave your sewing machine at home, spend the day with Kim, and learn just how easy it can be to work with wool when you create this tradition-with-a-twist quilt. Black and green cotton prints pair beautifully with an assortment of richly-hued wool appliques, and the result is simply stunning. What's more, Kim will share her tips and tricks for perfect design layout, wool applique preparation, and simple hand stitching to make this a fun and relaxing class for anyone. A great learning project, even if you've never tried applique! Because wool applique and invisible machine applique methods are so completely different, the two workshop versions of this design are offered separately and cannot be combined into one class.
