Bargello Sunflower Applique Wall Hanging Quilt Class

Bargello Flower Appliqué Quilt Wall Hanging Class Workshop Lessons

3-5 Day Retreat

This 3 – 5 day workshop is geared to a retreat where lots of time can be spent on learning and creating this fantastic quilt. 

Working with colour runs and strip sets you will create a Bargello run for the appliqué pieces rather than using just one piece of fabric for the appliqué. The Bargello with its movement and colour placement will give depth and dimension to the sunflower. Learn how to finish off the flower and add detail to each petal by using the technique of free motion zigzag. 

The goal of this workshop is to create a stress free and relaxed environment to have fun, learn new techniques and create a gorgeous sunflower. The project may look difficult but it is in fact uncomplicated and easy to create. No need to worry about perfect precision for sewing the Bargello as it’s just going to be cut up.

Suitable for intermediate and advanced quilters.

Note: There is also a 1 day class available, Mini Bargello Sunflower Quilt Workshop, based upon my Bargello Sunflower or Bargello Dahlia patterns which works on creating a small flower and finished project which is suitable for all levels of quilters.

Enjoyed your classes very much not to mention your great notes/info.  You really made me think I could do this!!!
