Madeleine Double Wedding Ring
Class 3

Add to Design Board

This is the third class in this series of software club classes working on the center portion of Karen Charles' Madeleine Double Wedding Ring quilt.

The class meets Monday, March 2 from 1:00 to 4:00.

In this class students will be using the designs from Madeleine by Inspira to create the center of the beautiful Double Wedding Ring quilt designed by Karen Charles. We will be using the Modify module to shape the flowers into a tear drop shape, the Create module to put in an alignment marker, and Extra to create the rings. We'll also use the Create module to create quilting designs.

Once we are finished creating the quilt, a follow-up class will be scheduled to stitch out the quilt. You'll learn how to use the alignment markers to line up multiple hoopings and how to quilt your quilt with your embroidery machine. Sew much to learn!

Madeleine is a whole cloth quilt measuring 42” square.

This class is for owners for Premier+2 Ultra who purchased their software from Cottage Quilts. You must have attended the first class in January.

The blocks are a Marti Michell design that are pieced using a set of her templates. The corners of the templates are already trimmed for you making it so easy to line up each patch.

Class instruction each month includes a demo on cutting and piecing your blocks.

We'll start the applique panels in month 7 with instructions on several different ways to applique.

Day Dreams is suitable for your favorite method of applique. Use hand techniques, fusible web with a machine decorative stitch, or invisible machine applique with freezer paper. The shapes have gentle curves and no points. It's perfect for a quick project or the beginning appliquer!
