In this first session Heather will walk through the technique, show samples of a quilt, computer clutch and checkbook cover and will discuss fabric selection and other supplies needed.

Heather goes through the process of selecting the fabrics to be used and rips them into various sizes and shapes. She will then layer up the backing, batting and iron-on adhesives to prepare for the decorative layer and quilting.

Heather will position all of the fabrics for the surface of the design and iron them in place. Then she will add any decorative additions such as swirls, borders etc to complete the look.

Heather discusses all things related to quilting the surface including thread selection, foot selection and needle selection. She will begin stitching, change stitch designs often and show how she changes thread colors as desired for a unique look.

In this final session Heather will make all of the final touches. She will trim up the quilted fabric as needed, stitch on any embellishments and finally sew the clutch together. Heather will also share a few other projects and discuss how they were made.

Come along with quilt artist Heather Thomas to learn all about this fun technique of creating quilted surfaces to make art quilts, computer carriers, purses and even garments.

This is a wonderful way to explore color and texture as well as a great opportunity to use all of the decorative stitches you have on your machine.

With just a little bit of iron-on adhesive (and no piecing) your efforts will yield a delightfully unique quilted surface to use as is or to create other items with. This is a great new technique to add to your tool box!

Also included is a class project PDF so you can create your own crazy quilted accessory cover.
