Confetti Branches

$ 95  


This technique is perfect for foliage. It can yield lacy trees and textural details that really could not be done as well in any other method. In class, you will make a small wall quilt featuring a tree branch with lacy foliage. The tree can be further embellished with a bird or butterfly motif or flower blossoms cut from a fabric print. A kit will be available.
Please be courteous to others by arriving for class with the correct supplies. Contact me at 503-631-8806 or helene.m.knott@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Materials Fee $30  paid at beginning of class includes:

all fabrics needed, tulle, batting, adhesives, thread, and a choice between two patterns.

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

• Scissors: with blades that you don’t mind cutting adhesive coated fabric with AND good fabric shears with heavy blades. NOTE: the spring loaded type of shears made by Fiskars® are strongly recommended to make cutting the confetti much easier, especially for those with painful joints.
• Sewing pins
• Pencil
• Teflon pressing sheet: absolutely necessary for this method, I will have a couple that can be shared but if you have your own, your project will progress faster..
• Sewing machine: with a free-motion foot (don’t forget your foot pedal and power cord!).
