Hi Everyone, welcome back. I am so excited today to talk a little bit more about my on-line Live Zoom quilting workshops and detail what is involved in them and what you will learn in this first one, the Mini Bargello Sunflower Quilt.

What is a public enrolment workshop?

Public enrolment means that anyone can sign up for the workshop as it is open to the general public and not a private event for a group such as a quilting guild or quilt shop. I’m opening up my quilting workshops to the public so that everyone can take part in my great workshops.

What is involved in this type of workshop?

Basically you sign up for the workshop in my store and then take part in 3 separate sessions to create the Mini Bargello Sunflower Quilt.

The workshop is run over 3 sessions – March 29, April 12 & April 26 with 2 weeks between sessions to work on your project. You can choose from either the 10 am or 7 pm time slot. I do most of my workshops over 3 sessions with great results and participants love having the time between sessions to work on their piece. In fact, by having this time it usually means a finished project and no UFO sitting in a drawer. Heaven knows we all have far too many unfinished projects sitting around.

What are you going to learn?

The workshop is chalk full of great information, tips, tricks and techniques that will not only help create this gorgeous quilt but other future projects as well.

This project may at first appear difficult but in fact it is not at all difficult and is perfect for confident beginners and experienced quilters alike.

So hop over to my store and sign up for the Mini Bargello Sunflower Quilt Online Workshop right now. It is going to be a lot of fun.

And remember you can create your sunflower in any colour scheme you want – it doesn’t have to be yellow. To see some other sunflowers check out the work of some of my previous students.

If you’re not quite sure about this project just remember it isn’t as difficult as it looks, its a very forgiving technique and…

Perfect precision is not required – it’s just going to be cut up!

Until then,

Happy Quilting
