Garden Party - Opal - West 1

Join Opal for this whimsical and fun quilting class where you'll make a stunning Garden Party quilt! You will learn about permanent and temporary bonding methods that you can use to secure your appliqué pieces, and have an opportunity to use the free motion feature of your sewing machine to secure those pieces to your topper. By creating individual blocks, you can adjust the size of this project and create anything from a wall hanging, to a lap quilt, to a queen size quilt and up!

If you'd like additional time to complete your quilt in a group setting, check out Opal's Sit and Sew sessions!

Supply List:

  • Pattern: Garden Party by Laura Heine (available at Central Sewing)
