Stained Glass Quilting Class – something new for me

Posted on: 1 March 2008

It started with a class on Thursday night. Our guild was to have a Stained Glass Quilt class on the 23 Feb, but the instructor had to cancel due to some reason. So she called and arranged to hold the class at her house on Thursday night. I asked for the supply list which she sent me.

I gathered the items I had… she said she had stuff available for purchase (she runs her own home-based business). I thought, that I should probably bring a few basic things… Well it turns out… I needed a lot more of the basic supplies than I brought. LOL. This is actually my first class with the guild, so I didn’t know what else I needed… apparently a sewing machine would have been helpful. She was nice enough to lend me hers. There are 3 of us in the class. The other two students, have done stained glass quilts before… so I was the “newbie”! We were going to do a rosebud.

Here are a few “in progress” pictures. I got carried away last night (Friday), as I wanted to do something. I stopped myself, before I had finished it, so I’d have something to do the next class on Tuesday evening.

Fascinating! I’ve not seen this technique before.

[…] discovered something new (for me anyway).  It’s an interesting quiltmaking process called Stained Glass Quilting and mentioned at BCQuilters Weblog.  You’ll also find here a brief description of the […]

You might want to try our technique, Too Easy Stained Glass. We’ve published a book called Simple Stained Glass Quilts and several patterns. You create the complete leading first and then place it OVER your focus fabric – fewer steps, great results – no bias, no glue!
