Instuctor: Bethanne Nemesh
HANDS-ON CLASS! (Two students per head) Freehand feathers are a quilter’s best friend. They can be formal or fantastic, fast or fancy. Learn to grow your freehand feathers at your own pace with the addition of details and inserts. Based on Bethanne’s popular new book of the same title, see how even beginner feathers can grow to fancy heirloom ones with a few simple changes. Learn to match your feather to your quilt’s style, budget, and use. Students will modify up to 10 “base” feathers that feature non-backtrack quilting into more than 100 feather variations! Bethanne’s individualized teaching style will allow newer quilters to explore freehand feather variations at their own comfort level, but will push advanced quilters to challenge themselves both with feather styles and the structure of elaborate feather motifs. Kit fee of $15 includes two yards of fabric pre-loaded top and bottom, batting, all handouts. Supply List: sketchbook and pencils, fabric marking utensil, thread snips.
