Time & Location
About the Event
**This is a 2 session workshop**
Sundays, October 11 & 18 from 10am - 1pm
Create a pillow cover or a center medallion for your next quilt. Two fun techniques and a great materials kit will give you everything you need to construct this luxurious, crazy-pieced design, framed in a circle of linen.
In our first session, instructor Julia McLeod will show you a clever technique that yields an organic, irregular, crazy-pieced look. In the second session you’ll set your crazy quilt in a perfect circle, adding simple machine quilting and hand stitching as a finishing touch.
In this workshop, you will learn:
- Crazy piecing by machine
- How to work with silk fabric
- Making a circular patch setting

- Hand quilting
This workshop will be recorded and will be made available to class participants for 2 weeks following the lesson.
