Tutor: Anita Eaton
Number of Lessons: 3
Skill Level: Confident
While Anita offers a couple of patterns in this workshop, it is mostly based on individual design. You can personalize your wall hanging for any occasion including wedding, graduation, and birth, just to name a few. Use elements, colors, and embellishments to create a unique quilt. You will learn new techniques to apply to your quilt so lots of creative fun. Anita offers help and guidance with placement of elements, fabric choices, sources of inspiration and anything else that relates to your project. Students have the ability to send photos and ask questions, Anita will be right there to offer suggestions, choices and new possibilities. By discussing your project with the classroom, other students can interact too and offer new suggestions that you or the teacher might not have thought of, then you can work at bringing your design to a whole new level. Pick your occasion and join the fun.
