Description

Faux Bois Quilted Pillow - Faux Bois is a French term meaning “false wood”. In this workshop, based on a quilt project in Blair’s first book, students will learn to create and stitch a beautiful all-over woodgrain quilting texture using a domestic machine and a walking foot. Students will create a pillow cover during the class. Mastering and practicing this texture in class is easy! After class, students will be able to apply this technique to any kind of project needing a little extra texture and body. In class, Blair will share tips and tricks for marking fabric, making piping, using a walking foot, etc. This workshop is paced to optimize actual stitching time. Students will leave with a full digital pattern file to follow at home to recreate this stitch on other projects. Students should come to class with a good, working knowledge of how to use a sewing machine.
