Amy Robertson--March Hare Collage

Levels:  All levels

Pattern Fee: $6

Description: Are you longing for something a little different? Every adventure requires a first step, and the March Hare quilt might be just the right place for your quilting adventure to begin!

If you've been wanting to try fused applique and floral collage but feeling a little intimidated, this project is the perfect size to try it out. You'll get plenty of tips to help you be successful and you'll learn about things like color choice, fabric selection, and how to arrange your floral elements to get the affects you want.

Bring some of your favorite floral fabrics to play with.  If we're feeling really daring, we can even swap flowers with each other for more variety! And there's no obligation to stick to the colors you see in the class sample. You can make this quilt uniquely your own.

But your journey into wonderland won't end with collage.  You'll also have some fun with fabric inking and thread sketching, just to round out the adventure.  And if you're worried, don't be. This is just an introduction. You won't get lost down any rabbit holes--you'll only be dipping in your toes and it's really much easier than it looks.

At the end of your travels, you'll have a colorful art quilt top, all ready to be quilted.  As a bonus, you'll get a demonstration and instructions for how to assemble your quilt sandwich and you'll get ideas for easy ways to quilt it on your own machine.

We can tackle all of this together without going completely mad--I promise. But if you're already entirely bonkers, come join us anyway. After all, all the best people are.

Supplies:

*Sewing machine that sews a good straight stitch  ;
*Light box or LED tracing pad (Medium to large is best.  If you don't have one, don't purchase one just for this class.) 
*A good pair of detail scissors (A medium size with a comfortable grip. I love my Karen Kay Buckley 6-inch Perfect Scissors.) 
*Rotary cutter & small mat (optional)
