DST - Collage Lion Facebook Workshop

About the Event

This workshop is a perfect way to learn how to create beautiful collage quilts and develop a thorough understanding of the Draw-Sew-Trim applique process. 

In this workshop, I talk about colours and contrast, the very essentials of a successful collage applique.

I guide you through the preparation process, starting with printing your pattern, assembling it and transferring it onto white cotton fabric. I help you with fabric and thread selections. I instruct the applique of the lion head design step by step showing you all the little tricks and tips of the technique that saves you a lot of time and effort with any of your future applique projects.

I show you how to free-motion embroider your applique and create beautiful eyes that are full of life.

I also give some suggestions for finishing the quilt but it is up to you how you would like to use it. You can finish it as a bag, a wall-hanging, a cushion or as a decoration for a notebook cover.

The workshop takes place in a designated Facebook group. The price of the ticket includes the price of the lion head pattern. The pattern will be available in the Facebook group, in the "Files" section. The workshop is recorded, therefore it is available to rewatch at any time, so you do not need to worry if the time of the workshop is not convenient for you. This gives you an opportunity to work at your own pace in the convenience of your home.

The videos cover the application of all the pieces. 

If you have any questions please ask in the comments and I get back to you as soon as possible.

If there is a question that is better demonstrated than described in words, I am happy to record new videos within the group.

So it is an ever-growing live group that gives you the opportunity to chat with the members and share your progress and thoughts with us.

About your pattern:

There are two drawings, a simple and an advanced design, you can work with either of them. In the workshop, I follow the simple design with the instructions but it can be applied to the advanced design too. 

This pattern is instructed using the Draw-Sew-Trim technique.

Size: 16”×16” (40 x 40 cm).

(But you can enlarge the pattern to whatever size you need and create a wall hanging as well.)

How to get access to the Facebook group:

If we are „Friends” on Facebook, I will invite you to the designated group of the workshop. All you need to do is to accept the invitation and you get instant access to the videos that guide you through the process of creating your own piece.

If we are not „Friends” on Facebook, which means we are not connected yet, you will need to send me a Friend Request:

  1. Copy and paste this link into your search bar on Facebook:
  2. Click the search button and when it finds me, just click on „Add Friend”     I will look for your Friend Request, add you to my contacts and to the relevant group as soon as possible.

In the group, you will find numbered videos of the project with short descriptions of what they cover. I present the videos in English.

If you do not understand English, you may still ask questions in comments and I will answer your question as thorough as I can. It is very important since Facebook gives an instant translation of these texts to your chosen language. That may help your understanding of the process beyond the visual experience.

There will be more classes coming up in various themes. I hope you got inspired and I look very much forward to seeing you at any of my workshops. 

Happy quilting!
