Workshop: “Redbird and Berries” Wool Mini Quilt
January 20 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm
This will be a Zoom workshop, either at the church or you may take it at your home!
This beautifully textured 22” x 24” mini quilt is a wonderful addition to your winter décor. It works up quickly with the ease of using wool for the Redbird, berries, & stems. The border is completed with mini-charms (2.5” squares). Learn techniques for wool applique, some embroidery stitches, machine piecing; and Karen will draw and demo her approach to McTavish styled background quilting! We’ll discuss border quilting options too.
