Two online classes from 2021 Quilting Sewing Summit

2021 Quilting Sewing Summit had free quilting and sewing classes during the first week of February.  I took 2 classes – Trapunto and Paper piecing.  The Trapunto class was taught by a quilter from Hungry – Agnes Bobak.  In this class we made a trapunto shell using a stencil.  It was fun to take a class from an instructor outside the US. After the class I used my Inktense pencils to color the shell so it would stand out on the turquoise fabric.

The second class was a modern cactus pillow block using foundation paper piecing.  us pattern was called “Succulent” by Melissa Mason (Her website: Quilt All the Things).  I liked the modern look of this cactus flower. I quilted the block using my walking foot – straight lines and echo quilting. I decided not to make a pillow so I used a yarn binding instead.  The finished block is about 16″ square.

Keep having fun sewing and quilting.
