QU 2017 Friday – Over the Top Embellishment – Kathryn Schmidt
Embellishment is not only for crazy quilts, but can be used to bring heirloom beauty to the quilts you make. In this Friday class, learn to enhance your designs with embroidery, beads, ribbon, lace or trims. GAAQG member, instructor and author of Rule Breaking Quilts, Kathy Schmidt will teach hand stitching and the basics of embroidery and beading. Click here for some examples of her beaded work. You will have a pattern for a small piece, sew it in class and be ready for your final finish at home. Materials for a unique, personalized kit will be available in class ($10) or you may bring all your own supplies (see the supply list).
