Workshop: Showy Lady Slipper

  • Duration: 1 full day
  • Level: All levels
  • Project size: 20"x14"
I love orchids, and enjoy capturing their elegant simplicity in appliqué. The Showy Lady Slipper is endangered in the wild, but we can safely capture it in this project with an Art Deco flavour.
We will begin by creating and layering pattern pieces, and I will lead you through the showyladyslipper_detailfundamentals of needle-turn appliqué as you create the stem, leaves and blooms of your flower.
We will discuss the importance of fabric selection for achieving a realistic result.
Ideas and techniques for quilting and finishing will lead you toward a completed project you’ll be eager to display!
