About the Workshop:
We are lucky to have prize winning quilter RachelDaisy visiting Berry in May! Rachael has visited us before and her classes are usually a sell out so be quick!
We have made her signature ‘whizz-bang’ folded blocks in the past but this time, we are going to have lots of fun spending two days with Ric-Rac and discovering Rachael’s bright and energetic style of quilting and teaching. In this two day workshop we’ve grouped three of Rachael’s ric-rac quilts that employ similar techniques and you may choose to make in class the one that appeals most to you. Below you will see photos of Ric-Rac Razzamatazz, Charming Smiles and the brand new Tickety Boo Quilt.
The workshop is suitable for beginners but also wonderful for more experienced sewers who would like to try something different, play with colour and get a bit of a third dimension happening in their work. If we have enough numbers we’re also going to run a Bubbles and Groove is in the Heart Monday! So why not bring a friend and come for the whole three days!
Rachaeldaisy in person is a whirlwind of happiness and colour and her quilts are similar. She chooses incredibly saturated colours and celebrates flowers in all forms! She is a prolific maker who often pushes the boundaries of what makes a quilt. She is also a very patient and enbciraging teacher who knows how to help a room full of people at different levels explore their stash, develop their colour sense and have fun playing!
A quote about Rachael direct from her website: “Rachaeldaisy has become synonymous with bold, colourful, eye popping quilts. and it’s no wonder after 20 years of being a florist experimenting and mastering colour and form.
Whilst honouring the tradition of quilting she continues to find fresh ways and new techniques to interpret conventional designs. Her use of 3D elements such as folded and gathered fabric techniques, yoyo puffs, prairie points, wool felt, appliqued and piece denim create beautifully unique textured work.
Her fresh interpretation of the art of quilting has seen her quilts awarded many prizes including Best in Show at both the 2015 and 2016 Australian Modern Quilt Show, Best in Show & Best in NSW at the 2016 Sydney Quilt Show. Most Innovative at 2017 Dare to Differ Contemporary Textiles Exhibition, 2017 Best Use of Colour Sydney Quilt Show. In 2018 her work was shown on the catwalks of Paris in collaboration with dynamic duo Romance Was Born. Rachaeldaisy’s quilts have been exhibited in quilt shows and galleries and featured in many publications both nationally and internationally.”
