Download brochure here.
Welcome to the Twelfth Annual Cabin Fever Retreat at Watson Homestead! This year’s main feature workshop creates a 32” x 38” wall hanging that combines patchwork with fusible applique. This project will allow you to fine tune your piecing skills as you create a checkerboard center portion of the quilt, then learn fusible applique techniques transforming the checkerboard into a cute wall hanging packed with charm. And to top it off, the quilt is embellished with buttons and rick rack.
Just as in past years Saturday night is “show and tell” and a good time to share projects that you have created. In addition to quilts also bring along a non-quilt item that you have made. It can be knit, crocheted, painted, jewelry, scrapbook…just something fun to share.
* Once registered, students will receive a materials list, detailing what to bring. Workshop limited to 30 students and a $5 handout fee for all class handouts will be collected in class.
