Birds of the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary & Audubon Center

2018 Sanctuary Programs and Events

Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 11:00 am and 1:00 pm.

Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary & Audubon Center will be hosting a quilt demonstration.

Sharon Hirschhorn will be showing how she takes a nature photo and  implements the steps to make a raw edge applique art quilt . One of the easiest ways to applique is the raw-edge fusible-web method. Raw edge appliqué doesn’t need a lot of set-up or mental prep—think paint by  number for quilters Fusing your fabric pieces is an easy way to complete an appliqué project fast. You can leave the edges unstitched if you don't plan to launder the finished project (wall hangings, art quilts).

*There will be an opportunity to make and take a small project home.  This is a free program.
