Captivating Clamshell Workshop

Fee: $150 – Includes Show Hall Entry Pass – Valid workshop day ONLY
Kit Fee: $54 – Captivating Clamshell Cushion Kit includes pattern, pre-cut interfacing clamshells, fabric and glue.
Type: Hand

Clamshells are created when half-circle shapes are connected and layered in an offset grid. But forget the curved piecing – there’s an easier way! Using precut iron-on interfacing, we will glue the seam allowance to prepare the shapes for stitching. Kits will provide everything you need to make a dramatic clamshell cushion from Stonehenge Gradation Strips. Make it a relaxing handwork project or stitch your prepared clamshells together by machine at home.

Type: Hand

Every month has a flower to symbolize the birth date, commonly known as a birth flower. Inspired by Kathy’s award-winning quilt “For Such a Time as This”, each birth flower has been incorporated into a delightful wreath design. Both the needle-turn and Apliquick methods of turned-edge appliqué will be presented in class, as we learn the secrets of smooth curves, sharp points, and perfect circles. Make a special block to commemorate your birth month or collect the whole set to make a stunning quilt or a perpetual calendar.

In this interactive lecture, Kathy will take you through a series of design exercises working with line, shape, and scale.
