Hawaiian Quilt

Hawaiian Appliqué Class with Connie

Johnson Sayler

Hawaiian quilts are visually amazing and

look complex but are very easy to make. I

learned to make Hawaiian quilts from

Nancy Lee Chong in 2008 and have

become hopelessly addicted, so much so

that I purchased Pacific Rim Quilt

Company.

2 Day Workshop:

In this 2 day class you will be able to

choose your favorite Pacific Rim Quilt

Company Hawaiian wall quilt pattern. You will have hands on

experience cutting and basting your quilt. Then you will learn

needleturn appliqué techniques on a practice piece or on your quilt if

you choose. We will have time to discuss the next steps, quilting and

finishing your wall hanging.

All skill levels welcome. No machines needed!

Crazy Quilt

  I hope you will join me in the wonderfully creative adventure of crazy quilting. I have found crazy quilting to be a great way to tell a story so when you are planning your block for this class, I’d like you think about what you might say. It might represent a certain person i.e., your mother, your family, a place, your favorite hobby (like quilting), your love of the sea or shore, or even your favorite book. This is an opportunity for you to make something to leave behind. We will spend some time documenting your story as well. So come join me in creating something beautiful as well as meaningful!

Kit: $60

embroidery to embellish our block.

Annie will instruct the hand applique method that is found in her book, The Ultimate Applique

Guidebook - a simple freezer paper, turned edge method that’s a little different from what you’ve

done before. All of the applique elements are basted into place securely so this piece will be
