July 8 Collage Quilt

Jane Haworth will be teaching this  class with special attention on free-motion quilting techniques.  This class will be held at Whistle Stop Quilt Store in Auburn from 10 until 4 pm.  Jane will guide us in using fabrics in plain colors, small prints and one large scale print to work a theme and design a unified collage.  The theme can be flowers, shells, birds, fish, spirals, and so forth, based on the inspiration provided by your fabric choices.    This is an example of a collage from Jane’s collection.
