Folk Flower Block with Anna Maria Horner


Availability: Coming soon

We are thrilled to welcome Anna Maria Horner to our studio where she'll be teaching her very first ever classes in the UK! Anna Maria is one of our favourite fabric designers and a huge source of inspiration to us and so many of our customers. We hope you'll join us for one of her special classes!

In this one-day class, Anna Maria Horner shares how to use machine reverse appliqué to create this simple but stunning floral block that can be combined very specifically with others, or more sporadically with some solid blocks for a varied look. She also offers tips of scaling the block to suit each quilter's hopes for their finished design.

Techniques taught in class include:
*Fabric selection
*Tracing, cutting, clipping, pressing and pinning preparation
*Machine reverse appliqué
*Compositional planning and layout

Materials: You will need to bring or buy the materials for your project. You'll need:
*Various fabrics ideal for fussy cutting flower heads, fat quarters or at least 8x8” scraps
*Various fabrics ideal for leaves, fat quarters or at least 4x7” scraps
*Various fabrics for stems, could be pre cut into 1” strips (lengths anything 16” or longer)
*Fabrics for background, anything that would allow the above fabrics to shine. Consider that the original version of block is a finished 12”, so starting with about 13x13” is ideal (multiplied by total blocks desired)
