Do you have a crazy pieced block or quilt top perhaps from A Crazy Lady’s Guide to Piecing that is just waiting to be encrusted with embroidery, ribbonwork, and embellishment? In this class I will cover many techniques that you can use to create a unique and beautiful heirloom piece that will be passed down from family member to member. Please note that there will be no instructions to make or finish the block or quilt.
Skill Level Advanced: embroidery, ribbonwork and beading knowledge needed
Lesson 1: We will cover the embroidery threads, and the basic embroidery stitches. These will be used to embellish the seams and bits of extra lace and trims.
Lesson 2: We will cover ribbonwork flowers and leaves made from bits of ribbon and trims that will be used in small floral vignettes or within and embroidered row.
Lesson 3: We will cover silk ribbon embroidered stitches that will be built off the base stitches, and also be used in small floral vignettes. I will also cover flowers and leaves that can be stitched with traditional embroidery stitches.
