Create Lovable Canines

I love using contemporary or modern fabrics in my work, and especially for making animal quilts! The fabrics mean they’re not hyper realistic like batiks might be, but the designs are colour blocked and accurate so they’re not cartoonish. The result is a mid century, paint by numbers look. 

I’m excited to share my signature style with you and talk you through every single part of the process. I hope you enjoy making one - or all - of these pups.

By the end of class you’ll have taken away skills you can apply to any of your other patchwork projects, whether choosing fabric, basting wall hangings or machine binding.

My course is designed to teach you my signature, no stitch, turned edge appliqué style, but also show you additional techniques you can carry through your other work. -Kerry
