Grand Leaf Block 2

Join Katherine as she show cases the Westalee Design Grand Leaf Template

This block combines the Grand Leaf Template, TempLee Quilt, and traveling to produce a beautiful block. The designs not only radiate from the center of the block but also jet in from all four corners to produce a unique use of design.

Katherine will also use a new technique that gives the finished product a "chenille" type look.

The Grand Leaf is an ornate template can be used in a variety of ways.

The Grand Leaf Templates were designed to fit a hexagon, it is worked using the 6 Point Crosshair Ruler. The Grand Leaf Template can be used with 6, 8, 10, 12, 16 or more Crosshair Reference Lines. Remember that the more Reference lines used the more intricate the design. The Grand Leaf design works beautifully when TempLee Quilted. Once the Grand Leaf Design is stitched use the outer edge of the template to quilt the internal feathering.

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 cloths 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.
