In this class you will learn all about making quilts that look like stone or tile mosaics, including step-by-step instructions for several easy, eye catching designs for you to work with.
Quilt artist, author and instructor Heather Thomas will show you the designs, as well as how to make simple cut outs to use as a fabric placement guide. You will get the chance to look at various iron-on adhesives and how to prepare your fabrics for use.
You’ll also be shown how to layer up your mosaic quilt and walk you through placement of your design template. Heather will introduce different ways of approaching a design and walk you through the free form cutting that she uses for all of the fabric “tiles” used in the motif portion of your mosaic.
Heather will share ideas on how to go about quilting your miniature mosaic and give some additional information on quilting on a larger scale. Whether you choose to free motion quilt or use a walking foot and guided machine quilting, the stitching is easy and stress free.
You will also get to see how easy it is to finish your Miniature Mosaic with an iron-on binding and use decorative stitch to hold it in place.
