Teaching & Grand Re-Opening at LQS

Spread the word! I’m teaching an Introduction to Foundation Piecing at Capital Quilts in Gaithersburg, MD on February 8 from 10:30am-1:00pm. The classes at Capital Quilts are very affordable, and I think it is going to be a lot of fun.

I will be teaching a Spiderweb block–something simple and achievable, even if you have never foundation pieced with fabric (or paper).  Here is my version from the Sweet Celebrations Book–the class sample is in progress and is full of bright, happy spring colors.

Here is the class description: 
In this class, we will be learning the basics of foundation piecing, or sewing fabric to a fabric foundation. The quilt design incorporates a traditional kite or spiderweb block with a modern aesthetic, including a variety of neutral solids, bold prints, and negative space. We will talk about color, design, and precision piecing as we work on the blocks in a relaxed environment. 

The class catalog is here.

    Good luck with your class Katie. It sounds like it will be a lot of fun. I have the book with this quilt in it. I should bring it and have you sign it!

    Good luck with the class–I wish I were there. I grew up in the DC area. Too bad I can’t use a class as an excuse to go home …

    I was tickled to read this because I taught paper-piecing for several years before I moved from AZ and many, many years ago, I lived in Gaithersburg.
