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.
