Class Description - Have you ever wanted to design your own quilt? A medallion quilt can be a wonderful way to begin. After the medallion is designed, the rest of the quilt is finished by adding border after border. In this class you will be taught the technique of Broderie Perse. The flowers you select for your own designed vase will then be appliquéd on wool which will then be the flowers in your original arrangement. You will be taught Broderie Perse, Wool Applique, stems, leaves, and finally hand embroidery embellishment for your flowers. The medallion you have designed and executed can then be the center of a wall hanging or any other finished project and will be totally your original design. Adding wool and embellishment stitches to your Broderie Perse is a creative process which is fun, original, and eye catching.
