Tina Curran’s Whimsical Garden workshop involves making a pieced background, Fussy cutting flowers (from floral fabrics), adding cut stems and then fusing down and raw edge appliquéing all the flower heads and stems to the background. For those who do not collect floral fabrics (or even those who do), an option is to make flowers from any non-floral fabric they already have. Tina Curran illustrates how to do that in her July newsletter (see the link below).

Tuesday November 10, 2020 Zoom Presentation with Rita Solkin
Collecting and Caring for your vintage quilts.
Did someone leave you a quilt or did one call to you from a vendor’s table at a local summer market? What now? How do you keep it, should you wash it, how do you repair that little tear in some of the fabrics? And of course, how much is it worth?
Come and learn some of the answers while viewing 50 plus quilts, tops and blocks ranging from 1800 to the present. Please bring your cherished vintage and antique quilts for show and tell to help everyone get in the spirit of those wonderful, mostly anonymous, mostly women, who turned a household item into something beautiful
