1. Free Motion Quilting for the Pre-Schooler.
Learning to quilt is like starting your education journey. You need to start at pre-school and then step your way up in grades as the basic skills are honed.
Don’t be afraid – Free Motion Quilting is achievable once it is broken down in to simple steps. It’s like learning to write, one simple shape at a time.
This class will enable a beginner the creativity to extend their skills to new levels.
2. Playing with Circles Wall Hanger.
The Playing with Circles Wall Hanger Class is a technique-based class. You will be taught many different techniques using the bias circle shape and will be amazed at what can be created.
The skills learnt in this class include invisible applique, bias applique, 3D folded circles and quilting, to name a few.
3. Springtime Wall Hanger.
A great class if you would like to step outside your comfort zone, have fun, and learn how easy it is to work with bias fabrics.
You will create a beautiful Springtime Wall Hanger and learn how to cut fabric on the true bias so it lays flat around the tightest curves.
Pauline will also teach you how to do different texturing of fabrics to create a funky vase for the spring flowers to stand in.
4. Circle Celebration.
The Circle Celebration Class you will learn Pauline’s Back to Back QAYG technique (the easiest of her two techniques).
Learn how to quilt the blocks first, and then applique creative circles to the quilted blocks, before finally joining the blocks together using the Back to Back technique. Pauline will show you how a double up sashing can add dimension to any quilt.
Grading out the bulk at the seams will be a particularly important part of this class.
5. Crazy Patch Gone Modern.
Crazy Patch has been around for centuries. Traditionally it was made from bits and pieces of fabric and trims. In this class you will learn how to put a twist on the tradition to create a modern look to crazy.
You will use simple shapes that are then applied to the backing and batting, with the raw edges covered with different bias trims. Once all the pieces are in place, the quilting is done to enhance the finished look.
This is a fantastic, creative class, with the outcome sure to surprise all who take part.
6. The Finishing Touch.
Edging your quilts can often be an area where you think ‘I just want to get this thing finished’, and rush through it. However, it is one of the most important aspects to having a beautifully finished quilting project..
This is a not to miss class if you would like to learn how to get that perfect flat finish to any wall hanging or quilt – no more rippled edges!
In addition to getting the edges even and flat, you will also be taught a range of bindings including, scrappy bindings, bindings to do scalloped borders, and best of all – bindings with peepers/flange/piping.
7. Between the Block QAYG Table Runner.
In this class you will learn the second of Pauline’s Quilt As You Go techniques – Between the Block.
The Bewtween the Block QAYG technique needs to be used if any of the blocks in the quilt have a 1/4″ point, like on pieced blocks. Pauline will teach you step-by-step how to make this small table runner, with the technique then able to be applied to any QAYG quilt.
A fantastic class if you never again want to struggle with trying to quilt a large quilt on your small domestic sewing machine.
8. Jelly Roll Rugs.
This is a fun and easy class to be part of, where you’ll make your own Jelly Roll Rug. Ideal if you have some jelly roll bundles laying around or a lot of fabric in your stash – a great class to use them up and get your creative juices flowing.
Pauline will teach you how to use the PQW Jelly Roll Sasher to make your own jelly roll strips; and how to join them together to form a jelly roll rug.
You will have the choice of what size you’d like to make your rug, with the option of making an oval, bear or butterfly Jelly Roll Rug.
9. Woven Rugs.
This is an enjoyable and relaxing class that gives you all the tips and tricks for creating woven rugs.
A great option if you want to use up fabrics from your stash, or purchase new fabrics, to create a unique rug to match your decor. Using the PQW Weaver Sasher Set, Pauline will show you how to create the weaving strips, and the easiest way to weave them under and over to form the base of your rug.
A great class for those who want to do a project where minimal sewing is required. You’ll have the option to make either a round, oval, square or rectangle shaped rug.
