Poison Bottle Quilt

Make the Poison Bottle Quilt-Full Day Workshop (six hours) in which I teach basic fusible applique techniques and various embellishment techniques used in my Poison Bottle Quilt. Embellishments include easy beading, metal brads, Tsukineko fabric markers, Derwent Inktense Pencils and Blocks, Freezer paper stencils. Most students leave with enough blocks to make a table runner or a wall hanging in this six-hour workshop. I also offer a lecture about the history of these poison bottles, and  I show many variations of my design. It’s always a crowd-pleaser!

Poison Bottle Quilt

I have designed 12 blocks, showcasing 25 rare and unusual poison bottles. These designs are based on real antique poison bottles.  As I released each pattern, I wrote a little about the history of each of the bottles on my blog, shared my in-progress photos, shared tutorials of embellishment techniques, and gave variation ideas.

I invited many quilting friends to share their personal interpretations of my blocks. I hope you will visit my blog and see how they envisioned my designs.

General instructions are here as a free download.
