Hawaiian Appliqué Saturday 24th February
Jo Avery Full Day 10.30 to 4.0pm
19th century missionaries brought the art of patchwork to Hawaii, and the native woman made it their own with applique designs based on the flora and fauna of the Island, as well as more spiritual symbolism of gods, legends and emotions. We’ll be tackling this simplified, modern interpretation of traditional Hawaiian applique that Jo designed for Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine. We will be learning the traditional way to transfer the design and how to stitch perfect turned-edge applique.
This is a hand sewing class which takes time. Hopefully we will get a quarter of the pattern completed in the class. You can either carry on at home or Jo will show you how to make a charming mini quilt or pot holder from the finished quarter. You will need some solid fabric, exact amounts will be sent with your order confirmation. Suitable for all levels though some hand sewing experience would be useful.
