ZenSuedled Whole Cloth Marking Class
This is not your grandma's whole cloth! This "hands on" marking and design class will see you mark a complete 45 x 45 inch ZenSuedle Whole Cloth that can be easily stitched at home. Sue offers a full array of templates, stencils, and rulers as she takes you step by step through marking your own "one of a kind" ZenSuedle. This is a technique Sue developed that results in a perfect balance of texture and colour every time. It uses artistic quilt motifs, fillers and designs combined with unique placement of variegated and solid thread colours to create a spectacular art whole cloth quilt, every time. You will need to bring 2-3 fine tipped wash away marking tools ( I recommend Clover white wash away pens when you are working on black fabric) and a 45 x 45 inch of black fabric. Sue will supply everything else needed for the completion of the marking in class. The hand out for this class gives you step by step instructions to take home so there is no need to take notes or concentrate on any thing other then creating your master piece in class.
** This class may be offered as a 4 hour marking class
** This may also be offered as a 4 hour marking class followed by a 2 hour demo with tips and trick to completing the quilting at home.
** This class works for all forms of machine quilting (longarm or domestic) and makes for a wonder hand quilting project for those of us who still love the art of hand stitching.
