No need to worry about perfect precision – it’s just going to be cut up!

In this class we will explore the world of colour to create a colour run using light, medium and dark valued fabrics. The key to creatin movement within the flower is the colour run and the placement of the fabrics within the Bargello.

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 focus 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.

Along with the colour run, Bargello and appliqué, there are bonus materials for creating a interesting centre and a couple of different borders.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of quilters. The pattern and all templates will be provided by Jennifer.
