Learn Stitches Step-by-Step

Ever have a quilt that is rather um…..blah? Why not add hand embroidery to it? Hand embroidery transforms your design. It will bring your quilt to life!

And that’s what I like about my new online class, Fused Art Quilts: Tiny Homes. It allows me to show you step-by-step how to add hand embroidery to a quilt. I discuss thread colors and sizes, needles, and stitch choices as I complete a design.

Each embroidery stitch is demonstrated several times. And if you need more stitch instructions you can always refer to my Hand Embroidery Stitch Library.It comes free with the class.

Tiny Homes Make Me Happy!

Tiny Homes #3 by Laura Wasilowski

This quilt is an example made for my online class at Quilter’s Affair called Tiny Homes. I demonstrated how to construct the quilt top in the class but not how to add the hand embroidery. That came later after all the filming was “in the can” as they say.

Tiny Home #3 (detail) by Laura Wasilowski

An advantage of my teaching an online class is that I spend less time lugging luggage and racing through airports. That means I have more time to stitch quilts like Tiny Homes #3. So I’m enjoying my summer of relaxation by adding hand embroidery to quilts and free-form embroidery designs. I hope you’re enjoying a relaxing day too!
