Free Motion Quilting Fall 2023 Promo (1).jpg
Workshop: John MacPhail
Pet 1.png

John MacPhail started to make Pet Portraits, but got so busy that he decided that it might be better to teach us how to make our own! 
Join us over 2 sessions to make a fantastic piece of art featuring your favourite pet/animal. 
You will make the pattern, plan the composition and learn the method.  These portraits are artfully made to capture the essence of your pet or favourite animal. They are created using a technique called raw edge appliqué. These portraits may be made as a wall hanging, a pillow or a small quilt. 


What is raw edge appliqué?

Raw edge appliqué is a technique that uses layers of fabric in shapes to create an image, in this case, a pet portrait. Once the image is created, these layers are adhered together and stitched around the perimeter to stop the edges from excessively fraying.
