Using various fabrics Jane will guide you in making the ‘face’ using her raw edge appliqué technique. Over the 2 days you will have the opportunity to work on the fabric collage and also on the 2nd day Jane will explain the free motion quilting on the piece and if you are ready you will have the opportunity to free- motion quilt.

Jane will provide a plastic sleeve grid, 8 ½” x 11” and paper to draw the pattern onto. If you want to do the above Afghan lady, Jane will bring the pattern.
