'BE MINE' - SHAPED LACE HEARTS - 3 Hours

The fine fabrics and lace and intricate workmanship of heirloom sewing join with quilting cotton and simple piecing to create a delightful little wall hanging. Learn to make see-through lace hearts by shaping French cotton insertion lace into curves and miters on cotton batiste. The three 7” heart blocks are layered over blocks of your choice of fabric, joined, then edged with a border and more lace. The centers of the hearts are accented with decorative machine stitching. We will also cover tips on trimming fabric from behind the lace, and how to repair the lace if it gets cut. You will quilt the wall hanging at home.

This class requires a zigzag sewing machine with some decorative stitches. Skill level: advanced beginner.
