Workshop: November 10 - Fall Migration (GVQC Members only)
Beth Kelly and Sue Donovan
How did Beth and Sue come together to teach at Fall Migration?
Beth writes, "It’s all quite simple. After an illustrious tenure, Roz Smith decided to retire from teaching Fall Migration. Janet Root, quintessential teacher of all things fabric, tapped Sue Donovan to replace Roz. Project maven and prolific quilter Sue said Of Course!"
After giving the matter further thought, Janet decided retirement from Fall Migration sounded pretty good to her too. Sue decided the two project/teacher format was fun and gave Beth Kelly ‘the look’. (If you’ve spent time around Sue, you know what that is.) Beth, reluctant teacher and slow sewer, succumbed to ‘the look’ and said OK."
Both enjoy quilting, fiber arts, learning new techniques and working together to come up with interesting and fun projects for Fall Migration
Sue's Project - Bargello
Learn to make a Bargello quilt with two methods. One is easier with a printed fabric that transitions from one color to the next. The other method uses a selection of colored strips of fabric. Regardless of the method, you will have fun as Sue teaches how to make this quilt project.
Beth's Project - Dimensional Flowers and Leaves
Do you need a bit more fun on your walls? How about your totes, jacket or quilt? Use batting or craft felt and fabric to make dimensional flowers and leaves. A variety of techniques will be covered. No fusible needed. As a bonus project, you’ll learn how to use your flowers and leaves to make a wreath.
