Why Whimsy?

As a lover of whimsical wares like Mackenzie- Childs, I wanted to create a fun twist on traditional quilting. This design got me out of the box so to speak. It is my own version of Wonderland.

Whimsy quilts all have three elements in common: a center medallion, surrounded by themed fusible appliques, and finished with a checkboard border. We keep adding designs to fit different seasons and reasons.

This course is divided into five weekly sections, which you can finish at your own pace. Between sections, you can join us on our private Facebook page and share your progress. or ask questions.
