We are delighted to welcome Rae Telfer to Cottage Quiltworks. Rae will be teaching a two day fussy cutting workshop at our Winter Escape on Friday, 21 July and Saturday, 22 July. Please see details below from Rae:
Format of the Workshop:
The art of fussy-cutting will be explored with a particular focus on using kaleidoscopic effects to create unique block designs.
To begin the day we will spend some time exploring fabric designs and studying the patterns to identify the potential candidates best suited for fussy cutting. We will use tools and techniques to identify suitable elements of fabric designs and spend time “playing” with, and examining, a variety of fabrics with a new eye.
Techniques for making accurate templates will be shown and hints given for marking fabric accurately in preparation for cutting. Methods for successful hand piecing will be demonstrated.
The techniques demonstrated in this workshop can be applied to a range of patterns.
Students select one of the following projects:
1. Fussy Tussies
4. Sew Useful Bag
