Mini Bargello Sunflower

Zoom workshop by

Jennifer Houlden

9:00am - 3:oopm (Arizona Time)

Perfect precision is not required to create this stunning sunflower. With Jen's expert instruction, you will explore the world of colour to select fabrics for the flower, cut and sew your strips then cut and sew again, and last but not least arrange your strips to create a wave-like effect (the Bargello). Transform the Bargello into an amazing sunflower adding the finishing touches with free motion zigzag.

Whether you’re a seasoned quilter or a beginner, you’ll leave this workshop with a beautiful Bargello Sunflower quilt that you can proudly display in your home or gift to that favourite someone who loves sunflowers.

What colour is your flower going to be?

The pre-session on Feb 6th will focus on the supply list, fabric selection including how to choose fabrics for and create the colour run and pre-class work for workshop. 

Don't worry if you can't attend the Feb 6th pre-session, it will be recorded and you can watch at your convenience.


A pattern purchase is required. A discount coupon will be provided in the reminder emails.  Jen recommends you wait to buy the pattern until shortly before or after the pre-session.
