Grandpa's Bridge Block #8 Coloring and Embroidery Workshop is learning and doing the ART of Color Magic. You will learn how to shade in and set your colors so your quilt piece looks like a painting. After the color is set. You will then learn how to enhance your artwork with embroidery.
There are 12 different embroidery blocks for this set if you wish to complete a quilt top. You will be doing #8 in this workshop.
The other blocks will be available at class for purchase also. Supplies will be a separate charge that Sharon will bring into the class for your purchase. Colors, floss and supplies will be available at class.
Grandpas Bridges is one pattern with 12 bridge patterns for $20.50. It was originally just an embroidery pattern and I chose to color them. After the first class they wanted to know the colors I used in each of the other blocks. I printed a set of 12 with colors and instructions for $15.00 sold separately. I will need to know one week before the class how many students there are to make sure I have enough patterns.
*The students will need the pattern to trace before the class.

This pattern includes 12 covered bridges reminisce about the good old
days. We will be doing only 1 (page 8). These covered bridge?s are perfect to
learn Crayola? coloring and embroidery. Since we are coloring first, do not use
Transfer Ease. Trace with .01 Pigma black pen. You will learn several ways to
Crayola? color with emphasis on coloring. We will embroider the covered
bridge using a basic embroidery stitch.
