“Magic Mushrooms” Online Class with Helen Godden
You will learn insights into Helen’s design process and how to make your colours POP, whilst adding impact, detail and interest! Your free-motion quilting skills will be enhanced and expanded as you learn so many different styles of quilting to add movement to your work, rather than flat missionary stippling!
Purchasing this class will give you unlimited access to a private Facebook group called “Magic Mushrooms” with Helen Godden. In this group you will have access to the design sheets and over 2 hours of instructional content presented in 10 chapter videos, that will take you from start to finish just like being in the classroom.
Your finished Magic Mushroom masterpiece will be approx 70 x 60 cm (28 x 24″)
