Learn different techniques to make stained glass quilts, by hand or machine. You’ll be able to decide how to make the “lead” (bias tape) and also if you want to sew the sample by hand or machine.

You will select beforehand from three different flower designs from Art Nouveau windows from the “Palau de la Música” in Barcelona. I’ll show you how to make bias tape from your own fabric or use ready-made fusible bias.
