The project for the workshop is the Waddington Charm quilt, from Carolyn's book "Creating Heirlooms: One Stitch at a Time". The centerpiece of this quilt is the medallion, which combines applique, english paper piecing, and hand embroidery. Below is Carolyn's description about the design source for her quilt:
"The embroidery in the original exquisite British medallion coverlet was wrought in wool and silk thread. In the center, the maker stitched "Ann Stevenson 1734" but the actual coverlet wasn't completed until 1820-1840- a common practice of the day. Families often saved pieces of embroidery and incorporated them into later needlework projects."
Included in the price of the class is a lecture "Reproduction Quilting and Design Techniques" on Friday evening April 29th at 5:30pm. Reservations are required, call or come in to register. If you would still like to attend the lecture, but are not registering for the class, there is a $10.00 fee.
