This 6 hour class is taught in two sections. The first 4 hour section is focused on students learning how to fuse a relatively large flower (20 inches), quarter it into sections, pin baste, and applique their flower by exploring the decorative stitches on their machines. Afterwards, students continue working on creating their other 3 flowers.
In the final 2 hour section of the class, students will learn how to trim down their blocks to the right size and assemble them using a variation on the "quilt as you go" method.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Swan Sheridan was born in Bend, Oregon and currently lives in Vail, Arizona with her husband and daughter.
Swan's interest in all things textile related began when she was very young. She tried everything from spinning wool to cross-stitch, and finally landed in the world of quilting during grad school. She dabbled in applique with that first quilt in the interests of covering a mistake, and thus necessity become the mother of invention.
In 2009, with her daughter in preschool, Swan began to refine her applique skills with unique designs. Shortly afterwards she took a job with Bella Quiltworks in Tucson, Arizona, which offered her the opportunity to be immersed in the quilting world in a whole new way.
Swan teaches in Tucson, offering classes in applique, color, hand quilting, and decorative stitches.
Swan will be speaking at the October 13 guild meeting.
