Whale Applique Quilt Top

  • niche creative studio 4706 Common Street Lake Charles, LA, 70607 United States (map)

Quilting has been around for a long time, and new life has been brought to this beautiful craft through Modern Quilting.  Modern quilting is a fresh approach reflecting each quilter's personality and personal style.  These quilts are often called chic and contemporary, even an update from a traditional style.

For this class, we are creating the wonderful & unique whale quilt top by Andrea King.  These appliques are fun to make and can be done on ANY sewing machine.  Once washed, they will rag up and create an amazing shabby chic look! We will also cover the freezer paper Quilt method and Cutting and Sewing Free-handed Curves.

Thursday, March 8th: 6-9pm

Previous Experience:

Adult sewists of all levels are welcome.  A basic knowledge of sewing is required for this class.

With our classes come use of our sewing machines and basic sewing tools; however, if you own your own machine, please feel free to bring it.  It's always better to get practice on a machine that you will be using at home and are more comfortable with.  If you don't have a machine or are unable to bring it, we will have one for you to use.

The best part about camps, classes & parties at Niche Creative Studio is that by the end you have some super cute items that you created yourself and the know-how to do it again anytime! Once you have signed up, we will send any special instruction or supply lists.  You can find all items in our store, so come by and we can help you pick the fabric that will be right for the projects.
