Iris Thread Painting

Past Class

The Old Country Store welcomes back award-winning quilter and fiber artist, Joyce Hughes! Joyce uses her domestic sewing machine to create breathtaking fabric panels and quilts using raw-edge appliqué, thread painting and other embellishment techniques. She is eager to show you how to do it, too!

In class, you'll cut the Iris block from a panel of six flowers (take the other flowers home for more fun!), then start "painting" it with the thread provided in your kit. You'll love adding layers of dimension and beauty, one stitch at a time!

This class project is small (thread painted portion approximately 9" x 9"), so it is the perfect project to learn on without becoming overwhelmed. Some experience in thread painting will be helpful, but confident beginners who are familiar with the techniques of free-motion quilting can also enjoy success in this class.

Don't miss Joyce's book signing and lecture the evening before this class! Read about it and register on our "events" tab. You may also find the event by clicking on Joyce's name below. Then, scroll down and click the link for "Joyce Hughes: Lecture and Book Signing."
