The Quilted Lizard Fiber Art Studio
with Karen Eckmeier
Time to play! Here we go round and round to create beautiful one-of-a-kind roses. This project workshop is a great introduction to Karen’s Layered Waves technique, which uses an easy topstitch method to layer and piece curves. In class we will make 6 Random Rose blocks in your favorite color. Create the skinny wallhanging/table runner in class, or bring more fabrics to continue making roses for a large quilt. Borders with gently layered curves will be demonstrated along with many exciting ways to use your Random Rose blocks.
