Fabulous Fusible Flower quilts
After you have heard Melinda’s amazing quilt journey- you will now be ready to learn her techniques to making a flower quilt with the look of a painting. We’ll spend a day creating one of Melinda’s flowers, including thread painting techniques to develop realism with your quilt. Guild member fee includes pattern.
