Majestic Monarchs

In this class we will show you how to make turned edge applique butterflies that you

can use to embellish the project of your choice. Each wing and body are individually

machine embroidered and then assembled on already quilted background fabric. This

method creates dimension and provides a finely finished project.  There is also an

option to install wire in the wings so they can be manipulated into a 3-dimensional

fabric sculpture. 


This class does not guide you through creating a quilt, bed runner, or pillow. Rather,

we will create one butterfly and attach it to a background of quilted fabric. The piece

you create in class could be used for a pillow or wall hanging.


However, the instructions and embroidery files provided with the class detail the

creation of a swarm of Monarchs flying across a Hoffman Fabric, Dream Big blossom

panel. There are 5 sizes of full winged butterflies and one butterfly viewed from the

side. To create the largest butterfly wings requires a hoop size of 200 x 360 mm.

Included in the instructions are fabric requirements for the complete quilt.

Handouts, in addition to the Majestic Monarchs files, will provide instructions for a

bed runner and a pillow.
