Grandmothers Flower Garden

The Grandmothers Flower Garden (GFG) quilt is probably the most well known traditional quilt using hand sewn hexagons. There will be 2 classes this Spring . The purpose of these classes will be to get you set up to create a GFG quilt over the next few months. These quilts take a long time as they are all hand sewn. It is however very portable and is a great travel, camp or cottage or just being at home project.
We will reconvene in the Fall to share our work and address any concerns or questions as well as talk about finishing and quilting.

 I’ll be using 1” hexies but any size will work. The project uses just the hexagon shape.

Big Stitch Quilting

This class is an introduction to big stitch hand quilting sometimes called utility quilting. It is different from traditional hand quilting in that the stitches are bigger and the thread used is heavier. It can be used to highlight certain areas of the quilt and can be used alone or in conjunction with machine quilting. In this class I will discuss technique, needles and thread used and various applications . This is a fun technique which is very easy to learn and very forgiving as there are no rules!
