Latifah Saafir Bias Tape Appliqué Workshop

The Boston Modern Quilt Guild is very excited to welcome Latifah Saafir, co-founder of the national and Los Angeles Modern Quilt Guilds. Latifah is known for her bold and innovative modern quilts. Combining her training as an engineer with her lifelong passion for sewing, Latifah creates designs that are graphic and contemporary, featuring challenging techniques with meticulous attention to detail.

Learn the idiosyncrasies of working with bias tape appliqué as you design your own machine stitched bias tape appliqué quilt. The first part of this class will explore the nature of designing quilts with bias tape, learning the ins and outs of how bias tape works and the things you must understand in order to effectively work with bias tape. You will design your bias tape quilt and then  transfer the designs to fabric and start to sew them. Students who want to learn the technique but don’t want to design their own quilt have the option of sewing either the Airshow or No Latitude Quilts.
