Murano Monogram Kathy Wylie

Murano MonogramCreate your own custom monogram block that sparkles like Venetian Murano glass. In this class, you will learn five ways to make turned-edge fabric circles for hand appliqué. We will also explore a variety of project ideas using other medium such as buttons and beads, wool, markers and more. Kit includes circle templates and the monogram pattern of your choice.

Class notes: Sewing machines are not required or provided for these classes. Holding a quilt seminar on a cruise ship is a unique experience. Sometimes there are space and time challenges that prevent our being able to be "project oriented" and we must concentrate more on process. It is very unlikely that you will have an absolutely finished project at the end of a class. It is helpful if your expectations match these realities. But regardless of how far you are able to progress, our instructors are professionals—some of the best in the quilting world—and we know you will learn many new techniques and have a wonderful experience!
