**CLASS** Freemotion Fantasy Birds - Sheena Norquay, Sunday 23rd June
When: Sunday 23rd June 2019 10am - 5pm
"This workshop is based on my quilt FANTASY FLOCK. Students will be given a menu of heads, bodies and tails from which to create the outline of a fantasy bird. I will demonstrate how to draw a simple bird outline and how to transfer the drawing on to fabric. After talking about threads and waddings, I will demonstrate how to quilt feathers for the body and tail from a menu of ideas for quilted feathers. Students can choose simple or complex patterns. The bird will be quilted on to a layer of wadding using one or more threads which contrast in colour with the fabric. After trimming the wadding around the bird and tacking the top to the main layer of wadding and backing, the background around the bird will be free motion quilted with a thread which is either the same as the background or slightly lighter or darker. Again I will show ideas for quilting the background. You can bind your wall hanging at home. By the end of the workshop we should have a fantasy flock!"
