"Four Seasons (Spring)" Workshop
This workshop is a perfect way to develop a thorough understanding of the Draw-Sew-Trim applique process and get inspired.
The "Four Seasons Mandala" is a series of four separate quilt patterns that fit together with design elements running from one section to the other creating a beautiful mandala. I instruct the "Spring" section of this 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. The sections can be created separately and individually as well, they can make a lovely cushion or wall hanging by themselves too.
Besides the Draw-Sew-Trim method, you can learn a lot of other techniques in this class, such as free motion embroidery, chenille technique, embellishing your quilts, and more.
There are 4-5 hours of video footage in this Facebook group.
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.
Purchasing the workshop you will get the "Simple Drawn Design" pattern in .pdf format via email. There are no written instructions for this pattern. You will also get access to the Facebook Workshop group and unlimited access to the videos in the group. (For further information please see: "Recorded Facebook DST Workshops")

"Four Seasons (Spring)"
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate
The "Simple Design" series is a collection of hand-drawn pictures that can be used for any larger quilt compositions for a price of a cup of coffee.
This beautiful spring scene is the second design of a four-piece mandala of the four seasons. The other two seasons are coming soon. The lines and images will match together to create a large square that can either be a tabletop or a wall-hanging quilt. You can also create them separately as cushions to decorate your home with.
We will create this design together through an online video workshop in a designated Facebook group in April 2021! By buying a ticket to the event you will be invited to the Facebook group and get unlimited access to the tutorials. You can watch them any time, chat, ask your questions, and share your work with us.
Size: Finished size approx. 40 cm x 40 cm (16" x 16"). Enlargement: 200%
The four pieces together will be approx. 80 cm x 80 cm (32" x 32")
