You'll be creating your own unique version of a leaf printed cushion cover.

We'll be printing from leaves foraged in the chateau grounds.

First onto paper to see how it all works and then onto fabric.

Next we'll layer up the printed fabric with batting and a backing fabric, pin then tack through all layers to hold everything in place and then quilt around the leaf shapes.  Finally we'll sew in place an overlapping envelope back to finish off the lovely cushion cover.  Et voila!

I really loved Katie Pasquini Masopust's display at the Sitges Patchwork and Quilting Festival.

Sitges by night 

And by day
Cap de la Villa, centre of town.

One of many beautiful features along the narrow streets
of the old town.

Dr. Roberts

These vintage pieces were exhibited in a gorgeous old building on the sea front.

Sitges Patchwork and Quilting Festival 
is amazing!

Beautiful weather & beautiful surroundings.
A great ambiance.

Individual exhibitions are set in fascinating buildings -
Manoli Lozano exhibited in the Ave Maria Foundation Chapel.
