Laura 's Craftsy Classes


Hand-Stitched Collage Quilts

Laura shares whimsical designs for three small, single-block quilts that you can create along with her.  You'll add fusible web to your fabrics and learn how to protect your tools and work surfaces. Cutting out free-form appliqué shapes and composing your artwork are a breeze - your creativity and improvisation are encouraged!  Then it's time to add details and texture with a wealth of hand-embroidery stitches, from lazy daisies to French knots. Laura will show how to make more than a dozen stitches, and help you finish your quilt with batting, a colorful border and options for hanging. Laura's e-book Fanciful Stitches, Colorful Quilts is included free!
