HEARTS ABOUND

Four blocks - four fun techniques - four hearts abound! Come play with fun gadgets, making each heart unique.
'Scrunch' one up, 'weave' love into another, be as 'biased' (and ruched) as you like...and there's the thrill of 'chenille' too.


Hearts Abound uses a quick 'quilt as you go method' with the blocks quilted before adding the hearts. The blocks are quilted in a grid, a simple process for those new to machine quilting. Then each of the four featured blocks are set on point to create the centre, and corner blocks are added before framing with the binding.

These workshops are presented as one day classes with the understanding that a bit of preparation beforehand is required. Each project uses a Quilt As You Go method for assembling the quilt. To get the most from the workshop, all the pre-workshop instructions need to be completed, including having individual blocks quilted. Students can forgo this step if they prefer to just learn the fun fabric techniques presented in each block. If you’d like more time to work on your quilt under Pauline’s guidance these workshops can be booked as two day classes.
