Over the Hill Quilt Class



The Over the Hill class will be using the Wendy Williams pattern from Australia. The quilt uses a cotton background with wool appliques. The background is curved piecing but don’t let that scare you. I will show you a quick and easy glue basted method for piecing the curves. The appliques will be sewn on with a machine (or by hand if you prefer that method I will teach you both methods) and I will teach you all of the hand embellishment stitches. This class will be taught once a month over a 4 month period as follows:

 

Month 1: Selecting fabrics, sewing the background, cutting out and attaching the appliques. Bring your sewing machine to this class.

Month 2: Embellishment stitches on blocks one, two and three

Month 3: Embellishment stitches on the fourth, fifth and sixth blocks

Month 4: Embellishment stitches on the seventh, eighth and ninth blocks and doing the borders.

 

The first month you will need to bring your sewing machine but after that you will just need to bring your pattern, blocks, threads & embellishments.

Instructor: Judy Ballance
Instructor Bio: I'm an avid quilter and I have made over 400 quilts in the 18 years I have been quilting. I love doing my own quilt designs and adapting purchased designs to personalize my quilts. I also love to teach quilting and I have taught at many of the local shops over the years. I have also presented at many local quilt guilds in Tuscaloosa, Athens, Huntsville and Madison. My philosophy of teaching is to show you the tips and tricks I have learned and to make the learning experience fun and creative. I encourage students to add their own touches to their quilt and to think outside of the box.
