Lake Norman Quilt Guild Workshop
Modern with Applique
Kathleen Baden is coming to LNQG on Wed, May 24th to teach a workshop on Modern Quilts with Applique. We are going to make the quilt shown on the cover of her book (shown below). In the workshop she will discuss prepping the background for the “fishy” quilt and then she will teach freezer paper method of applique as well as other forms of applique.
Near the end of the workshop, Kathleen will discuss and demonstrate big stitch hand quilting. Check out her website, www.kbquilts.com to see a marvelous example of her work on the modern improve quilt.
This is a unique opportunity to stretch your quilting boundaries into modern as well as hand stitching with a darling quilt that measures approx. 35” X 40”. However, this sweet “fishy” quilt can be machine appliqued/quilted or hand done as Kathleen has samples of both.
Supply list for the workshop

One yard of background fabric – she will bring her background, Caribbean blue, for $7 a yard or bring your own.
