About the Event

Brew up your own fabric collage table topper or placemat in this really fun, hands-on workshop with Pati Fried. You'll get to create a one of a kind fabric collage in the theme of your choice. We'll have some fabrics available to supplement your own. Pati will start by walking you through design concepts to make your collage pop, show you her method of raw-edge applique and then you will practice free-motion quilting on your class sample. To finish off the piece, you'll also learn Pati's favorite quick binding method. 

Working in this small size helps to build skills and it is so much fun to play with with fabrics to create your own surface design! Bring some yardage and scraps with the colors and images you'd like to include in you piece. We'll supply additional fabrics. Backing fabric and batting is included in this class!

Supplies: You'll get a complete list when you sign up. 

Skill level: ✂️✂️

You aready know how to thread and use a sewing machine and you're ready to learn more advanced basics.

About the instructor: 

Pati Fried studied graphic design in college, but always found herself lingering in the textile department. After graduating and working in corporate marketing for several years, she finally discovered quilting and was hooked. Mixing pattern, color and texture is a perfect fit for her, both as a quilter and a designer. She is a fabric and pattern designer, a popular quilt blogger for See How We Sew, and her work has been featured in quilting magazines.
