Template Tasting - November 2023
Table Topper
By Kathy Clawson

This course qualifies for 1 credit

Join Kathy as she creates a Table Topper of the Month highlighting DMQuilting and Westalee Design Templates.

In this class we will use the DMQuilting Maple Leaves along with the small and large leaf templates. After stitching the designs and adding some detailed veins we will utilize our Derwent Inktense Colored Pencils and fabric medium to bring the leaves to life with the beauty of fall colors. I can see many uses for this design.

Kathy Clawson, Sew Steady Promoted Instructor, Master Quilter

Kathy was raised by a mother who was passionate about sewing and instilled this love into her at a young age. While growing up Kathy sewed most of her own clothes and designed wallets, purses, and other bags. Then she found quilting and fell in love with the process and working with color and design. Free motion quilting became Kathy’s passion until she discovered Westalee Rulers and Templates. Utilizing her many years of free motion quilting set Kathy up for success with rulers and templates and a love of incorporating them together for a unique look.

Kathy owns her own quilt shop, located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, where education is the main focus. Her philosophy is to accomplish three things with her students. First, have fun. Second is to learn something with each class, and third is to leave with more confidence. Her teaching style is laid back and inclusive believing that not everyone learns at the same pace or in the same manner. Kathy incorporates written instruction, demonstration, and hands on approach to a well rounded educational experience.
