Class - Rambling Rose / Foundation Piecing (1/3) by Silk and Salvage
Silk and Salvage Bay Quilts Workshop Sunday, April 19th (1:30 to 4:30pm)
'Rambling Rose' workshop 1 of 3. Take any one or all three classes. Foundation Piecing with Silk
Piecing with silk can be intimidating – most silks fray and stretch easily and are also slippery to handle. By piecing on to a fabric foundation, your work gains strength and stability.
Join Julia McLeod and Sue Fox as we explore two motifs; 'Grandmother's Fan' and 'Irregular stripes'. These two shapes form the arched background of the sample quilt shown.
This class is the first in a series of three. You can take just one class to learn a particular technique, or you can join us for all three to complete a quilt like our 'Rambling Rose' pictured here.
