Ammonites at Kilve

Ammonites at Kilve


Beginners session on exploring ‘Trapunto Quilting’ technique.

Using photographed imagery and actual gathered ammonite fossils from ‘Kilve Beach’, to inspire the shape and form on a 2D surface, the workshop will develop these initially stitched shapes by the further addition of adding stuffing from the reverse to create a 3D effect.

Suitable outcomes could be a framed piece, or for a cushion front or a larger quilt centre.
