Workshops are offered virtually at this time for Quilt Guilds. This saves time and money for both the client and Laureen. In addition, students are in their own studios with access to their supplies without lugging them to a central location. We make every effort to engage with students as we would in a classroom and encourage interaction during the class.

Trust Yourself with Color

(3-hour workshop)

Do you want to

  1. Increase your confidence
  2. Create a common color language
  3. Practice what you learn
  4. Keep the quilt design you like but change it to the colors you love.

If you answered yes to any of these, this class is for you! We will immerse you in color theory and give you some tried and true tricks of the trade to ensure you can pick colors you love for your next quilting project.

We will help you understand why colors work together. And we will help you figure out where to use those colors for the biggest impact. 

This class is only offered via Zoom as you will be shopping your own stash during the class!


“If you want to understand the how and why colors–sign up today!I wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone who works with fabric. I finally understand why some fabrics just don’t “go” with the other fabrics in my selection. Laureen is a fabulous teacher. She breaks things down and even though this is a zoom class, it is very interactive.  Laureen’s class has given me not only the confidence to select fabrics for my quilts, but an understanding of why the colors “work”. Selecting fabrics is no longer a guessing game.  Also, I finally understand how to use a color wheel to build a color palette out of my fabrics.”

Applismith block

(3-hour workshop)

Transform your quilts with this three-dimensional fusible applique technique. During this 3-hour class, you will learn to

  • Quilt the background,
  • Make the templates and appliques,
  • Attach the appliques, and
  • Embellish the mini quilt to make it really pop.

There are a variety of patterns to choose from. Pick the pattern that fits your style, skill level and/or intricacy. Once you learn the technique, join us for some fun with larger projects.

Kits are available, which include all the materials except thread for sewing/quilting. Embellishment packs are also available.

“Took the Daisy class from Laureen today.   It was a wonderful class and a new technique for me.   Laureen is a wonderful teacher, giving options and answering questions.   I was able to keep up with the sewing and a completed project when the class was done.  Thanks Laureen!”
