Tea Party Quilt

This is a fun but challenging Wendy Williams pattern. You can choose to do simple stitching on the wool elements or go all out like I did. I also did machine appliquéd cotton fabrics on the quilt instead of the needle turn appliqué that is specified in the pattern. You can choose a scrappy background or make it all one fabric. You can also choose to do just the center section or a few of the blocks instead of the entire quilt. This is a two day class, the first day will be teaching you to sew the curved pieces and how to use the quick curve ruler and the second day will be teaching some of the embellishment stitches.

Class Supplies

 -Tea Party Quilt Pattern by Wendy Williams

-The pattern specifies Perfect Circles but that is optional since all of my circles were cut with a Sizzix machine (I will bring it to the class so you can use it). You can use whichever method you like.

-Quick Curve ruler

-Sue Spargo Creative Stitching Book

-Glue Baste

-A variety of Perle cotton threads for embellishment

-Embroidery needles (Chenille sizes 22, 24 & 26 and a bullion needle)

-Cotton fabrics according to the pattern- please note that she gives the fabric requirements for each

block/section not the fabric for the entire quilt, that’s why it’s easier to use a scrappy background that you can add to.

-A variety of wool fabrics (called felt in the pattern)

-Applique pins

-Freezer paper for the cotton appliqué pieces (like the mugs and cups)

-Lightweight fusible like misty fuse or soft fuse if you are doing machine appliqué instead of needle turn appliqué.

-Sewing supplies including sewing machine, seam ripper, pins, sewing threads to match the appliqués and to sew the backgrounds, rotary cutter, etc.

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.
