Workshop: Chinese Lanterns

  • Duration: 1 full day
  • Level: All levels
  • Project size: 19"x25"
The distinctive lantern shape and bright orange colour of these blooms make them a popular choice in autumn gardens and dried arrangements. Now you can capture these cheerful and festive-looking flowers in appliqué!
Fabric and colour selection is vital to the success of this piece, and we will look at your fabrics and discuss how to make good choices as you build the leaves and blooms from your pattern pieces.chinese_lanterns_detail
I will lead you through needle-turn appliqué techniques, and will demonstrate the tools and tricks of the trade.
Finally, we will review ideas for finishing and quilting your project.
