Class 8: Thread Embellishment

It is recommended to have a beginner level of machine quilting class experience and an interest in expressing your own creativity.
Class-----We will begin with an introduction/question and answer/show and share activity that will morph into a hands-on note card creation. From there, the creativity begins with a pre-printed panel/picture creation using fussy cutting from fabric and wonder-under/picture or drawing printed from a computer printer onto fabric/or whatever your artistic imagination comes up with. These works of art can end up as wall hangings, placemats, framed pictures, table toppers.......the possibilities are endless.

HANDMADE GREETING CARD – Part One of the Weekend Class Supplies Needed
--fat quarters or larger pieces of fabric.... Preferably large flowers/objects/design/etc.
--one piece of batting 5" wide x 3 3/4" tall
--permanent glue stick (not washable glue stick)
--piece of cardstock or thin poster board 6 1/2" wide x 5" tall
--threads to match your fabric-----variegated looks great with this project
Getting Prepared For Class
--the first step is one you can do at home with the card stock. It will save time and give us more creative time for class.
--mark a 5" wide x 3 3/4 tall rectangle in the middle of the card stock. Cut out the inner rectangle. Bring both the inner and outer rectangles to class. We will use both rectangles for our project.AndrewsAndrews
General Supply List:
 A sewing machine in good working order with manual. Feed dogs need to be down for this process just like when you machine quilt.
 Darning foot for your machine.
 THREADS.....lots of colors.....variegated threads look really good.......any brand that works with your machine.....and any weight will work. Leave the metallic’s at home (that's another class!!!).
 You will need muslin, batting, and maybe Wonder Under and some border/background material if you want to get really creative.....a yard of each will do.
 Fabric with big flowers or trees or a scene can be fussy cut to create your own work of art and be used with the Wonder Under and background material to create your own work of art.
 Sewing supplies and cutting mat/cutter are also needed.
