it is to make your own bias strips and prepare them for an endless range of 
design possibilities. Although this is a techniques based workshop, you may 
choose to make blocks for cushions, a tote bag, or a panel for a table runner.

Hot Chillies
Throw the rules out the window, there’s no quilting police in this class. This could easily be the most fun you’ve ever had cutting and sewing a quilt together. If you’ve wanted to try improvisational cutting and piecing, here is your opportunity. With some guidance on how to cut without rulers, and a bit of practice, you will be piecing quilt tops together in a day. You will be shown a few assembly tricks that will guarantee a perfectly flat quilt top. You’ll be able to create your own quilt recipe to make unique ‘one of a kind’ quilts. You should be able to complete a small quilt top in this class.

Improvised Curves
This is a great project to develop your improvised cutting and piecing skills. Here you will learn how to free cut curves and piece without pins. There are a few tricks to learn so the quilt top remains flat. You have the added bonus of learning an easy quilt as you go technique to finish the project. This method of construction may have you rethinking your approach to future projects and will introduce you to some very liberating ideas and techniques.

QUILT ENCOUNTER 2017

JULY 14TH - 20TH 2017

Immanuel College
32 Morphett Rd
Novar Gardens
South Australia


EVERY WHICH WAY - Saturday 15th July
A great quilt design for stash busting and featuring those special fabrics you’ve been saving. It uses twenty-one different fabrics; sixteen are patterned fabrics and another five solids for the borders, sashings and circles.
This modern quilt will give you the opportunity to practice your cutting, sewing and quilting skills. I will show you a simple technique to insert circles into the quilt top. You’ll also learn where the technique can be adapted to other shapes and situations.
I will give you guidance on how to quilt your work, as each of the sixteen blocks is quilted using a different design. Most quilting will be completed after the class.




Geese On The Table - Sunday 16th July
This small project can be adapted to make many more complex designs. Geese On The Table is a great introduction to ‘freezer paper’ foundation paper piecing. In this class you will be shown how to draught your own pattern and learn the basics of foundation paper piecing using the ‘freezer paper’ technique. This is a great way of achieving perfect accuracy with your points. The class also includes the technique of sewing incomplete seams. We’ll have time in this class to complete the table topper. I will show you some other ideas for using your pieced quilt top.



RETRO TABLE RUNNER - Monday 17th July

A funky modern table runner is put together wising what I call 'puzzle appliqué'. this technique will give you practice in precision machine stitching. the whole runner top is pieced together like a puzzle then layered with the batting and backing. Using satin stitch, all the layers are then quilted together. to finish off the runner, mitred corners and a self border finishes the edges. the is project will have you thinking where else this technique can be applied. I will bring samples to show how adaptable this method is. 



HOT CHILLIES - Wednesday 19th July

Throw the rules out the window, there’s no quilting police in this class. This could easily be the most fun you’ve ever had cutting and sewing a quilt together. If you’ve wanted to try improvisational cutting and piecing, here is your opportunity. With some guidance from Wendy on how to cut without rulers, and a bit of practice, you will be piecing quilt tops together in a day. Wendy will show you a few assembly tricks that will guarantee a perfectly flat quilt top. You’ll be able to create your own quilt recipe to make unique ‘one of a kind’ quilts. You should be able to complete a small quilt top in this class.




KITES IN THE PARK - Thursday 20th July

This workshop will introduce you to ‘freezer paper’ foundation paper piecing. This technique eliminates the tedious time consuming method of old, where paper has to be torn away from the work. The paper is folded out of the way when sewing and once the design is complete, the paper is simply peeled off the fabric. This technique is extremely accurate and can be used in place of traditional foundation paper piecing. I will also show you how to obtain perfectly sewn curves. There will be enough time in class to complete the cushion front and possibly some of the quilting.
