While creating this beautiful sunflower wall hanging, we will cover some basic fusible applique tips and techniques, stitching and quilting ideas, and explore the option of adding the 3rd dimension to your projects using the fun product Terial Magic. Fabric kits are available, and students can choose between doing standard raw edge applique or including the treated fabric for stand-up flower petals. *Terial Magic treated fabric needed for 3D petals. Brighten up your wall while you learn how easy it is to include 3-D petals in your quilted wall art all while you create your own garden of fabric flowers!

  • Student Maximum: 100
  • Category(ies): Fiber and Needle Arts, Just for Fun, Gift Items, Embellishment, Appliqué, Surface Design, Stretch Your Creativity
  • Experience Level: All welcome
  • Advance Prep: In order to build your flower and be ready for stitching, students should trace and label your pattern pieces on fusible web, fuse to the corresponding fabric color, cut out and organize your pieces for your flowers and leaves prior to class.

    If you are new to applique, don’t feel comfortable doing this step on your own, and/or cannot achieve this by day of class, I will cover these steps at the top of class and you can do this work during class instead. Note that you will most likely not be able to build your flower in preparation for stitching during the live class. But you will be able to follow the instructions upon re-watching. Students wishing to work on stitching/quilting during class should have their machine in an area where they can view class and listen to instruction as they work.
  • Supply List:

    Please order the required kit directly from Monique for $29.00 plus shipping using the link below. Order at least one week before the class to allow plenty of time for shipping. (If you are ordering less than one week before the class, you are welcome to join the class as scheduled, and follow along with the recording once the kit has arrived as you will have access to the recorded class for one year.)
