Hear From Laura!

Little Bird and Daisies is a sweet little wall quilt made with fused fabrics and embellished with lively hand embroidery.

Using the pattern, you’ll create the 8 1/2” x 15” quilt top in just a few lessons. Fusing tips abound including the miracle of pattern transfer!

I’ll discuss the needle and threads used to embellish the top with hand embroidery and demonstrate stitches for each element in the design.

Need a stitch refresher? Review stitch directions in your bonus embroidery stitch video library for both the right and left-handed stitcher. Discover the ease of making a fused art quilt and how each stitch brings the quilt to life.

Please join me in making this joyful and fun quilt! -Laura

Trust a Pro

Laura has been teaching for us at Quilter’s Affair in Sisters, OR for years, she brings a life to the classroom like no other teacher.

With her sense of humor, patience and wealth of knowledge, the students leave her classes with a tool box filled to the brim with new techniques, laughter and friendship.

Laura is professional and approachable, always willing to help her students succeed. We love having her part of our team of teachers!

Repeat Students

I have had the privilege of taking numerous classes with Laura over the past 15 years in both a guild setting and at the International Quilt Festival.

I never tire of being in her classes because I always learn something new from her. Most important, she is a fabulous teacher who gives you 200%.

Her kits and instructions are complete. She is happy to help each student individually. The real joy in her class is that you can just compose, embroider or build your project at your own pace and she is so very happy to help and assist as needed.

She loves to let you 'try your wings' and if you are very, very lucky, you get a few songs to make it all worthwhile.

Try her, you'll love her!
