January 2011: Demonstration of techniques to generate ideas for 'Branching Out' themed quilts

Marilyn demonstrated hand applique. This technique lends itself perfectly to making beautiful flowers, stems, leaves, etc. It might take a little practice to achieve the beautiful tiny stitches that come naturally to Marilyn!

Ester demonstrates free-motion embroidery stitching into soluble fabric to create delicate leaf and flower shapes.

Mari brought the 'Let the Flowers Bloom' quilts which were made by members of the Irish Patchwork Society and the Hungarian Quilters Guild. Mari showed us the method of paper piecing leaves and flowers, that Gyongi Varadi taught us while she lived in Galway.
